It’s been 20 years, and if you’re still confused about the Wachowskis’ Matrix trilogy, Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard might clear things up. The directors gave the French author’s book to star Keanu Reeves and other members of the crew to help them understand the connections between reality, symbols and society.

Watch

Now’s the time to catch up on Game of Thrones seasons 1-7 to find out who will finally win the Iron Throne. Still no word on the next book from George R.R. Martin.

What are people in Canmore, Alta., reading?

Cafe Books

  • Cafe Books
  • Canmore, Alta.
  • Owners: Joy and Charlie McLean

Books are just part of the charm at Canmore’s independent bookstore, Cafe Books, which is licensed and serves a mean scone. Right now, one of the bestselling books is Kate Harris’s Land of Lost Borders, which recently won the RBC Taylor Prize for Non-Fiction. Co-owner Joy McLean says the work is so beloved by customers and staff because it’s a story of adventure – a 10,000-kilometre bike ride across 10 countries that lasted 10 months – that “resonates and touches our customers because we live in such a glorious outdoor environment, surrounded by mountains and valleys, forests and lakes. It resonates with those who seek adventure as well as those who see themselves as potential adventurers but think they may never have the means, physically, mentally or financially (and then reading this suddenly feel it may be possible). Kate has written a wonderful book that I expect will become a classic.”
