The Canadian Book Challenge 3

Well, although it's the third time, it's a first for me. I've decided to participate in the Canadian Book Challenge hosted by John of The Book Mine Set.

The rules are pretty simple:

Starting July 1st, 2009 and ending July 1st, 2010,from Canada Day to Canada Day, read and review at least 13 Canadian books.

Now you don't have to be a Canadian to participate. As John says " I challenge Canadians and non-Canadians to read 13 or more Canadian books. Pick fiction, pick nonfiction, pick poetry, graphic novels, picture books, plays, etc-- if it's Canadian and if it's a book, it's in."

John is looking to read a book from every provice (hence the 13). Others are theming their reads. I think I'll just read whatever grabs my attention. Although I am waiting for that new Lori Lansens...

1. The Price of Love and Other Stories - Peter Robinson
2. Fear the Worst - Linwood Barclay
3. The Wife's Tale - Lori Lansens
4. Galore - Michael Crummey
5. It Can Happen to You - Lynn Crymble
6. Waiting for Columbus - Thomas Trofimuk

Good luck! I've singed up for too many challenges and am at full capacity or I'd hop on this one, as well. Enjoy your reading!

Good luck! I really liked Bonnie Burnard's A Good House, if you're looking for suggestions.
