|Read All Over celebrates the bookworm in all of us, showcasing readers in Vancouver and the books they love most.|
After a brief hiatus (back to school chaos, please forgive), here is our latest instalment of Read All Over featuring Jordie Yow – host of CITR‘s Peanut Butter ‘n’ Jams. Check out what Jordie’s loving and “meh”-ing, and be sure to tune in on Thursdays from 6-7:30pm for a jam-packed (hehe) show featuring the best of local music and food.
What’s on your nightstand right now? Are you enjoying it?
Well I usually read five to seven books at a time. So it’s not just one thing. [/humblebrag] But I’m currently reading:
Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon (struggling to maintain interest)
The Death and Life of American Cities by Jane Jacobs (loving it, a really intelligent look at city design)
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson (enjoyed it a lot at the start, but interest is petering off, nearly done though)
I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video edited by Rob Tannenbaum and Craig Marks (fun, light and on a subject that interests me)
Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street by Michael Davis (I wanted to read a biography of Jim Henson, this is kindof like that, plus Sesame Street was a big influence on my childhood),
The Man Who Was Thursday by GK Chesterton (it feels sort of dated, but it is good, I’m enjoying it with reservations)
and the Rolling Stone Interviews (occasionally fascinating, plus it’s easy to flip through)
