Your Autumn 2016 Reading List

The weather is starting to get a little cooler and there’s that distinct feel of fall in the air yet again. That could also be the abundance of pumpkin spice everything around, but either way, the signs of fall are definitely here. One of the best things about fall is curling up with a hot drink, wool socks on your feet, and a good book in your hand. We here at Context love books so we’ve rounded up some of the best reads to have on your reading list this autumn!

Books Are Blooming! Must-Reads For Spring 2016

As of March 20th – Spring has sprung! The snow is melting (and hopefully not making an unwelcome return), the birds are chirping, and soon the gardens of the city will be in full bloom. What does this mean? It means that park benches, cute cafés, and sun-filled lazy weekends are calling your name. At first it will be with just a soft hush, but by the time April finishes, these places will pretty much be demanding your presence. Sure you can just frequent these spots unarmed, and ready to people watch, or Instagram scroll – but it’s always a good idea to come equipped with a good book. With all the new and hot books that have been released so far in 2016, your must-read list is going to be full of options for Spring reading. Here are 5 worthy additions to any Spring reading list worth its salt.

Some of the best gifts for book lovers aren’t actually books. There are so many gorgeous and clever accessories that practically any reader would love to add to their collection. Buying books can either be a great success or a total miss so you can play it safe with these picks – no need to worry about what their favourite genres are or if they’ve already read the book or not!

Is there anything better than curling up with your favourite blanket, a warm beverage, and a great book? We think not. Now that the leaves are changing colour and you can buy anything in pumpkin spice flavour, we’re excited to curl up with some great reads.

Parks and green spaces are an integral part of the pulse of Toronto. Offering refuge from the hot summer sun, sticky sidewalks and maybe your shoes, the city’s myriad of green spaces are one of the best things about Toronto. Whether you’re a Trinity Bellwoods people-watcher, a High Park family-type or slowing down for a day in the Beaches, there are tons of great park activities you should scratch off your list if you haven’t already.

We’ve been reading many, many books lately. After all, it is the thing to do when it’s too cold outside to be social and mingle with friends. House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black have yet to return to Netflix, and we so gladly seek comfort in our first true love: books! The thing with books is that they’re not like movies, where the best ones come out during the summer and sometimes trickle into the rest of the year. Good books are always being published and so you always have something to read.

Here’s some books that YOU should read soon:

So, we’ve been so caught up with resolutions that we hadn’t even taken the time to sit down and hash out a new reading list for January. And to think, our resolution was to procrastinate more. So much for that. Anyway, check out our books you should be reading this month.

Ahh, as people of all ages return back to school and hit the books, we decided maybe we too should revisit our book reviews.

It’s been a hot week. And by hot, we mean sweltering, blazing, melting…that kinda of heat. Where you feel as if you can fry some eggs on the roof of your car, flip a few pancakes, maybe uh, make grilled cheese? Okay, okay, you get the point.

When it’s this hot out there’s nothing more to do than grab a cold beverage, grab your shades and hit the pool or patio with a good book! Here’s what we’ve come up with for July’s reading list.

Okay, we have a slight surprise for you so try to contain your excitement. There’s been amazing progress on the amenities centre of Library District and we just couldn’t wait to show you. Here’s the amenities centre in it’s current incarnation
