Canadian Book Challenge III

July 1, 2009 - July 1, 2010

From Canada Day to Canada Day, can you read and review at least 13 Canadian books? John at The Book Mine Set is hosting part 3 of the Canadian Book Challenge. John writes:
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.

Pick authors and books at random or theme your challenge should you be so inclined. I like to pick at least one book from each province and territory (it's where the magic number 13 came from), but some themes from other participants in the past have included a single author approach (ex. just Lucy Maud Montgomery or Robert Munsch books), a single province approach (ex. British Columbia or Quebec), a single gender (ex. wait, do you need an example for this, really?), and an ABM approach (i.e., just autobiographies, biographies, and memoirs). Of course, you could decide on an entirely different theme, or no theme at all. You do not have to decide ahead of time what books to read, but do so if it helps.

There are some guidelines posted in the post about the learn more, go there. To sign up, email John (details on the post about the challenge).
