Unless you’ve been in hiding (or Internet-free while on vacation!) you probably know all about the Pokemon Go phenomenon. I know I am anxiously awaiting the day it officially releases in Canada! If you’re in the same boat as I am, Buzzfeed‘s article on how even bookstores are Pokemon Go obsessed will make you even more excited to play when it finally arrives. Click here to see how bookstores are joining in on the fun. Are you looking forward to playing Pokemon Go, or are you excited for the hype to die down already?
4. Christmas is Coming Early This Year… and We Want to Celebrate With You!
I could not be more excited about this, Savvy Readers! I absolutely LOVE Christmas time so I was so happy to hear that HarperCollins Canada is hosting a #ChristmasInJuly event in two weeks. Matt Haig, author of A Boy Called Christmas, will be celebrating all things festive with some lucky guests. The best news is that you could be one of them! Visit HarperCollins Canada‘s Facebook page to find out how you can participate in all the wintry fun.
