The 5th annual Canadian Book Challenge

For the past 4 years, John, who lives way up in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories, has put on the Canadian Book Challenge.

This year he is at it again.

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 and other FAQs here.

Last year was my first year and I read 16 books in total. It should be interesting to see if I can match last years output.

I am interested in Canadian history and in the War of 1812, which makes the challenge easier.

I also find it interesting on John's website to see what others have read and reviewed. There is a link to each review. If interested hit the "here" link above.
