A Decade of the Canadian Book Challenge
John at the Book Mine Set has been running this relaxed challenge for the past 9 years, and now the 10th year of the Canadian Book Challenge is underway!
Join in - it's easy and fun. Read 13 titles over a year (from July 1 - July 1) -- choose whatever you want that is Canadian in any way you want to argue it, and share your reviews with other readers. That's it. Add to the total of 7028 reviews over the last 9 years -- that's right, over 7000 reviews of fabulous Canadian books that you can still look through by clicking on the yearly roundup links on John's blog. And you join any time this year. Right here.
I'll be reading along once again, and trying to keep current with the reviews; that's the part I'm finding harder than reading so many great books. I have stacks of both the latest releases and books from the last century to read and enjoy, and of course I always add many new titles to explore as the challenge progresses and I find new reviews by other participants.
This is a great challenge and a way to celebrate Canadian writing, and this year it's with prizes ;) So join us and have fun reading!
