What's Happening at Macdonald Hall?

bookI'm not a very big reader. Well, that's not entirely true. I'm not a very big reader in the traditional sense. That is to say, I don't read many novels. My wife is constantly reading a book or two, but I spend that time reading and creating content on the interweb.

As a pre-teen, I was a big reader, forever with a book on the go. My favourite author was Gordon Korman. Growing up in Richmond Hill, he wrote This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall while in grade seven, the first of his Bruno and Boots books. His Bruno and Boots series was my favourite and I'm pretty sure I read every one of them.

At some point post-Korman, I lost the reading bug. An extra hour or two at night now gets spread between the radio, television and computer. I wonder what's happening at Macdonald Hall these days?

My eldest daughter is a huge fan of Gordon Korman and has sent me on wild goose chases trying to retrieve her favourites for her to read from some of the used book stores we frequent. Her favorourites are "Everest III: The Summit" and "Chasing the Falconers."
The MacDonald Hall Series have just recently been reissued.

I had totally forgotten about these books but I remember as a kid not being able to put them down. Bruno and Boots were the shit at Middletown finishing school.

Mike, I have a signed copy of Bruno and Boots! I was informed of this a few months ago, I'd forgotten. The book itself is up north, not with me. I'm going to have to get it and take a photo..
