Over on the very excellent book blog, The Keepin’ It Real Book Club, you can watch me and loads of other people (new videos every day!) recommend a book as part of the Keep Toronto Reading campaign. (I enjoy that i have a giant claw hand coming to get you in the video’s default screencap. Hilarious.) The book I recommend is The Torn Skirt by Rebecca Godfrey — which astute Gossip Girl viewers will remember Jenny Humphrey reading earlier this season in Dan de Fleurette. But that’s not why I am recommending it (I do not get my reading list from Little J). I read this book nearly 10 years ago now when it came out in Canada, when Little J really was Little. Watch the video to find out why I love it — well, one minute of why I love it. Jen K, the main mastermind behind the blog, is still accepting submissions if you’re interested in recommending a book! As she so punnily ends the post, “Get spotted giving a 1-minute video! Email me: j.k.knoch[at]gmail.com”
The trailer for Gossip Girl‘s next episode, Dr Strangeloved, below — and remember there’s no new episode on Monday. It’s back on the 26th.
