The Miramichi Reader’s Top 10 Posts of 2020

Is it possible to do any kind of review of 2020 without mentioning Covid-19? Pretty much impossible it would seem. Nevertheless, the purchasing and reading of books rated high on the list of things to do while isolated. People had more time on their hands and hence turned to activities they could do at home, such as reading, home improvements, hobbies and pets. 2020 was also a record year for The Miramichi Reader, as we received more visits due to increased and varied content from our many contributors.

At this point in the year, it can be helpful to take a brief look back to see what the top posts were over the past year. We have excluded pages from this list as well as any “announcement” posts.

The Top Ten list contains seven book reviews and three interviews, all in the order of their popularity.

  1. The Transaction by Guglielmo D’Izzia
  2. The Guglielmo D’Izzia Interview
  3. The Forgotten Home Child by Genevieve Graham
  4. Small Game Hunting at the Local Coward Gun Club by Megan Gail Coles
  5. Narrow Cradle: Poems by Wade Kearley
  6. Things Worth Burying by Matt Mayr
  7. The Luke Inglis Interview
  8. A Medic’s Mind by Matthew Heneghan
  9. The Sherrill Grace Interview
  10. Some People’s Children by Bridget Canning

So, what does 2021 hold for The Miramichi Reader? We already have reviews and interviews awaiting publication, more collaborations with Atlantic Books, more giveaways, and while it is still in the development stage, a Flash Fiction feature that we are very excited about.
