Fan Mail: Borrowed it, had to buy it

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original Up North, we offer a sampling of fan mail over the years…

Dear Mr. Bennet & Mr. Tiner,

I borrowed your book “Up North” from the library last week and I really enjoyed it, a wonderful book, it impressed me so much that even though I had already bought my daughter and son-in-law’s anniversary gift, I could not let them go north to their “not far from North Bay” cabin without buying them a copy. But it wasn’t easy. Smiths, Coles and several major book stores did not have it, but I found it at a bookstore in Niagara-on-the-Lake yesterday.

My only regret is that it will be too popular and never appear on the “sale” counter in book stores where I buy my books! Congratulations.

Best wishes,

Janet B.

Dear Tim, Doug and Marta,

Thank you for producing Up North. A real pleasure to read and next best thing to being there, when one is imprisoned in this horrible, stinking smegmopolis called Toronto. Keep up the good work.

Doug and Tim,

Just a quick not to let you know how much we have enjoyed “Up North.” Jane and I have spend happy hours trading information and trivia. Congratulations! And all good wishes for a long time on the shelves.

The book is great! We have it out all the time when we are in the ”wilds” and so far it hasn’t let us down.

Best wishes with its continued success.

Jane T, Ottawa

More to come…
