Happy Canada Day -- with another Canadian Book Challenge!


Happy Canada Day!

What better way to celebrate Canada Day than to sign up for the 9th annual Canadian Book Challenge? John Mutford at The BookMineSet is once again the gracious host, and this year the theme is 'music'. By which I mean that the successive levels of reading are named after the top 13 Canadian albums.

This is always a fun and easy challenge -- the goal is to read 13 Canadian books between July 1 this year and next. You can set yourself a theme or personal challenge, or just read random Canadian books. The only requirement is that you share a review somewhere online for each title you are counting toward this challenge.

There are tons of suggestions at John's blog from previous challenges -- 6523 reviews, to be exact. So join in and have fun reading and celebrating our own Canadian literary heritage!

  2. Have you decided what your theme for this year will be? I read only 8/13 of the Gabrielle Roy novels, and I hardly reviewed any, so I have to decide whether to include that in another year's challenge or whether to quietly finish that on my own (I am loving her Enchanted Summer currently) and begin another project. Decisions, decisions!

    1. My theme is just to get some of my current TBR stack of older Canadian novels read! I've been reading so very many new Canadian novels that the classics are being neglected.

      I was enjoying Enchanted Summer myself...until I turned a page and realized that my copy is misprinted and repeated the same signature after page 80 or so...! Will have to find myself another edition.
