Markham Reads 2023: Bookworm By Robin Yeatman

We have our 2023 Markham Reads winner!   Markham Reads is a City wide summer reading program that invites everyone in Markham to read the same book and then come together to talk about it, attend events and meet the author.  This year the community chose ... Bookworm by Robin Yeatman!

We have many copies of the book available, in a variety of formats, so that you can read Bookworm before the author talk in August.  Place your hold now or come to the library to borrow a copy. 

About Bookworm:

One day, in a favorite café, she notices an attractive man reading the same talked-about bestselling novel that she is reading. A woman yearning for her own happy ending, Victoria is sure it's fate. The handsome book lover must be her soul mate. There's only one small problem. Victoria is already married. Frustrated, and desperate to change her life, Victoria retreats to the dark places in her mind and thinks back to all the stories she's ever read in hopes of finding a solution. She begins to fantasize about nocturnal trysts with café man, and imaginative ways (poisoned pickles were an inspired choice in Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres) of getting rid of the dread husband. It's all just harmless fantasy born of Victoria's fevered imagination and her books — until, one night, fiction and reality blur and suddenly it seems Victoria is about to get everything she's wished for. (HarperCollins)
