Last year I listened to the Canada Reads debate on CBC Radio. Unfortunately I hadn’t read any of the chosen books. This year, I will not make the same mistake. I plan on reading all five books and thought that this would be a great first challenge for me. As a Canadian and a supporter of Canadian literature, I love the idea of a challenge centered around Canadian books. And, unlike some other challenges that are quite large or open ended, all this challenge requires is that you read the 2010 Canada Reads books. And, to make it even easier, you can choose how many of the books you want to tackle. I plan on reading all five, including the one that I have already read.
If you feel up to the challenge and want to join, just leave a comment.
