I also very much like the library as a place to read. I walk by the new award-winning Halifax Central Library every time I go to and from work, and I stop in every chance I get. They have this great system where I can request a book online, and then they track it down and put it on a shelf for me with my name on it, so that I can drop by and sign it out. It’s absolutely magical.
Thank you also about your question about French. I don’t write in French but I would dearly love for some of my books to be translated.
