The 9th Canadian Book Challenge

Happy Canada Day everyone!

And along with celebrating Canada's Birthday - it's time to start The 9th Canadian Book Challenge! This year's theme is music - hence the guitar. This challenge is hosted by John of The Book Mine Set.

What is the Canadian Book Challenge? It's an online reading challenge in which participants from Canada and around the world aim to read and review 13 or more Canadian books in a one year span: Canada Day to Canada Day. Reviews must be posted online and participants are asked to share links to their reviews with other participants.

This will be my 7th year participating. (And I've met the challenge every year!) It's a wonderful way to sample the great writing Canada has to offer and discover new authors. Interested in joining? Further details and sign up info can be found here. I'll be using this post to track my progress.
