The Canadian Book Challenge
I just found the Canadian Book Challenge and joined.
The rules are simple. Read 13 Canadian books (books by Canadians and/or about Canadians) before Canada Day (July 1). Make sure to blog about each one! Participants will have their name entered in for some kick-ass prizes. Well, not really. If you've ever seen a Canadian gameshow, you know we're not big on monetary rewards.
Since the challenge started in October, I've read nine Canadian books:
"Duty: The Life of a Cop" - Julian Fantino
"Last Resort: A Memoir" - Linwood Barclay
"Bad Move" - Linwood Barclay
"Lone Wolf" - Linwood Barclay
"Toronto: Then & Now" - Mike Filey and Rosalind Tosh
"Stone Rain" - Linwood Barclay
"Bad Guys" - Linwood Barclay
"The Song of Kahunsha" - Anosh Irani
"Only in Canada You Say: A Treasury of Canadian Language" - Katherine Barber
