I’ve been watching The Canadian Book Challenge for quite some time now. It’s so well run, the participants are so enthusiastic, and goodness, haven’t Canadians written some wonderful books?
“The Canadian Book Challenge is an online reading challenge in which participants from Canada and around the world aim to read and review 13 or more Canadian books in a one year span: Canada Day to Canada Day. Reviews must be posted online and participants are asked to share links to their reviews with other participants.”
I argued with myself for some time over whether I should join in this year, because I do have a lot of projects on the go already. In the end I had a look at some book lists, to see if I could do this with books I have on hand; books I know the library has; books that I know I must, must read…
I most certainly can, and so I am in!
There will be a couple of crime books that I shall be slotting in to the Crime Fiction Alphabet.
There will be Virago Modern Classics and a Virago Traveller.
There are a few others too, covering a period of more than one hundred years.
And I am quite sure that I will discover more wonderful books and authors along the way. Suggestions are more than welcome.
More than enough provide me with my baker’s dozen.
HAPPY CANADA DAY!
