We started off the week with our annual literary awards hangover, brought you our Gift Guide for holiday book-buying, and learned some rare words (we hope this In Review ensorcells you).
This week we hair-of-the-dogged our Giller bash hangover with a new cocktail and poetry pairing, got into the age-old debate about how to best organize a bookshelf, and cheered for more award winners.
It's one of our favourite times of the year: the GGLAs were announced, Halloween candy is 50% off, and our schedules are packed with reading events. Read on to see which authors and books we featured on the blog, and what the internet has given us this week.
