Canadian Book Challenge.
I've never joined a reading challenge before but this one seemed like a good one to try, given that Canadian authors are mostly what I'm reading these days.
The rules are simple: read 13 Canadian books (books by Canadians and/or about Canadians) before next Canada Day (that's July 1st for you non-Canadians in the audience). [From The Book Mine Set]
I'm choosing my books based on where they are set, one for each province and territory. This is a preliminary list, based on what was close at hand, obviously incomplete, and subject to change. When the Canada Reads selections are announced next month, this list may change substantially. (Update: The Canada Reads books have been announced.)
Final update: I finished! Last review written in the wee hours of June 30th.
