12th Annual CanBook Challenge Signup


Another book-reading challenge, because there aren't yet enough of them that I'm behind on...

Melwyk at The Indextrious Reader is currently hosting a challenge to read 13 Canadian books in a year, from Canada Day (July 1st) to Canada Day. I'm in for the new year.

Right now I have no idea what the thirteen books I will read are, though there's a Matt Cohen I just picked up at a Little Free Library on the top of my book pile. In any case here are their placeholders:

1.) Peter Robinson's The Hanging Valley
2.) Carol Shields' Jane Austen
3.) Françcois Blais' Document 1
4.) L. R. Wright's The Suspect
5.)
6.)
7.)
8.)
9.)
10.)
11.)
12.)
13.)

    1. Go for it! We're only two months in--it runs from Canada Day to Canada Day. The challenge post has links to long lists of books, but they are a bit overwhelming. If you haven't read Alice Munro I do think she's really good, and I'm planning on some more Carol Shields myself. And I've got The Handmaid's Tale on my Classics Club list!
