“No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.”
- Mary Wortley Montagu (1689 – 1762)
All I can say is that I’m glad to have a few under-thirty types around to explain things to me. Middle age has made me information-impaired in some areas, and one of those areas is this:
A Certain Grace has been nominated to the top-ten list for the Scotiabank G*ller Prize Readers’ Choice Contest (a mouthful, I know). MANY THANKS, indeed, to those who have kindly added their nominations. Now I’m told it’s time to vote on the top-ten titles. The deadline is August 31, and if I’m reading correctly, one may vote once a day.
For anyone inclined to do so, here’s the link.
With thanks to the patient ones who have explained all this to me as though to a distracted three-year-old. Now, would one of my under-thirties please correct me if I’ve misread that last little bit about voting once a day? It seems kind of incredible. For that matter, the whole thing is kind of incredible.
(I still can’t quite say the word out loud)
