Just the Thing, our book recommendation tool that pairs books with every gift from concert tickets to bath products, continued with books to go with those travel accessories, bath & self-care products, sports memorabilia, gardening tools & plants + lottery tickets & gift cards!

Around the Web

~ The prestigious RBC Taylor Prize longlist included an ALU fave: Jan in 35 Pieces: A Memoir in Music, published by Porcupine’s Quill.~ Electric Lit rounded up a list of 14 literary podcasts that aren’t hosted by three white guys which includes Can’t Lit, one of our personal go-tos.~ Next time someone talks smack about poetry, hit them with some science.

What Else We’re Reading

We’re reading Deanna Young’s pastoral-gothic hybrid Reunion (Brick Books), a collection of poetry that weaves in and out of time, looking on a younger self, and plays with forms from ballads to prayer to Biblical sermons.
