9th Annual Canadian Book Challenge

Challenge Summary: 1. What is the Canadian Book Challenge? The Canadian Book Challenge is 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. More on reviews below.

2. How do I join? Send John an email (jmutford (at) hotmail [dot] com) with the subject line "Sign Me Up!" and He'll add you to the list. Consider yourself a participant even if you don't get a response from me right away. Come July 1st you can get started right away. As soon as John gets your first link (see below), He'll add your name to the participant list on the sidebar of this blog.  Follow the link below to the challenge page for more details.

My Progress:15/13

My List:

Since another Canadian Book Reading Challenge I was participating in was cancelled, I'm going to try to finish that challenge. So I will read the remaining books from that challenge (Or at least try to). Although, I think I will allow a book to fit into two categories. As long as I hit 13 books I'll be happy, but this just adds something extra!
1The challenge was:

Read 20 books by local authors (The Local Lover Canadian Challenge (15 Books to Go)
Read 20 Books by Award Winners (The Award Lover Canadian Challenge) (18 Books to go)
Read 20 book set in four different genres (The Genre Lover Canadian Challenge (14 Books to go)
