Don Amero is a singer-songwriter from Winnipeg who has earned two Juno Award nominations for his most recent album, Refined. When he isn't playing music, Amero likes to pick up a good book. Right now he's reading This Is a Book by Demetri Martin.

"For those of you that don't know, Demetri Martin is a stand-up comic. I just finished a stint of some really heavy books and I needed a break. This book was the exact break I needed. It's about nothing and everything. It allowed me to be free of the heavy for a little while. I love it and I think it's a good book if you're looking for something to surprise you. You definitely have no idea, from one page to the next, where he is going. It's a definite hilarious read."
