Canada Reads 2011 winner
Terry Fallis' The Best Laid Plans won Canada Reads 2011 today. Wow. That went by fast. I was determined to read all five books like I did last year, that didn't happen. I even had more time this year!! I guess none of the books really interested me all that much and I didn't really make it a priority. I tried to read Mavis Gallant's Home Truths and just couldn't get into it. Too bad. Oh well. It's over, the winner's announced, I kind of don't care, I declare my Canada Reads 2011 attempt to be officially abandoned. Ditto for Canada Reads Independently 2011. There are so many books I want to read right now, and for a variety of reasons I haven't been reading quite as much as I usually do so I'd rather focus on the books I really want to read. Not mention that I have a ton of holds ready to be available as soon as I make them active at the library and since I'll be moving at the end of April I want to take full advantage of some of the books I've had on hold for what seems like ever!
