Canada Reads 2010 Challenge!!
Canada Reads 2010 is a CBC event that celebrates Canadian literature over a three month period. Five CANADIAN books are chosen and defended by 5 "celebrity" CANADIANS in a battle royal survivor style "online, at public events, and on air". Half-hour on-air debates are held March 8-12 on CBC Radio One with one book getting voted off each week to determine which book Canadians should ultimately read in 2010.
This year's books are as follows: Generation X by Douglas Coupland, Good to a Fault by Marina Endicott, The Jade Peony by Wayson Choy, Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie Macdonald, and Nikolski by Nicolas Dickner.
I have decided to read along too! It's the end of January now, so if I start reading this week I should be able to fit in all 5 books, along with my book club book for February!
What do think? Anyone else up for it?
