The 10th Canadian Book Challenge

July 1st is the start date for the next 10th Canadian Book Challenge. This will be the 7th year I've participated.

What's the challenge you ask? Well, it's hosted by John Mutford from The Book Mine Set.

From John's blog:

"The Canadian Book Challenge is an annual 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. (It's also a lot of fun and collectively we've read and reviewed thousands of Canadian titles! Actually, the whole books, not just the titles.)

I've met the challenge every year so far! 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.
