Hi fellow Savvy Readers! It’s been very rainy this week here in Toronto — the perfect weather for snuggling up on the couch with a great book. But before you immerse yourself in your next favourite read, be sure to catch up on all the must-see bookish news of the week:
1. Now Trending: #TrumpBookReport
It seems like no one can escape the US election these days and now the bookish community has joined in on the discussion. On Wednesday night, a Twitter user mentioned that Donald Trump‘s statements sounded like a book report written by someone who hadn’t read their required reading. Bookish Twitter immediately started writing their version of #TrumpBookReports. Click on the photos above to see some of my favourites. Have you written a Trump Book Report?
