Canada Reads 2012
I love Canada Reads, and for the past 2 years I have tried to read all the books. I did so in 2010, but I only read a few last year but ended up bailing out early. This year I am not going to attempt it. "Why not?" you may ask, and I will answer, because I don't have time!!! I still read a little bit every day, but I don't really have the time to read like I used to (no 45 minute commute...oh and that baby takes up a lot of time too!!).
I will however continue to follow Canada Reads 2012 and maybe for the first time ever, I may actually listen to the debates instead of just reading about them online!!
This year's finalists and defenders are:
- Alan Thicke defends The Game by Ken Dryden
- Stacey McKenzie defends On a Cold Road by Dave Bidini
-Arlene Dickinson defends Prisoner of Tehran by Mariana Nemet ** I've actually been meaning to read this book for a while so I MAY read this one!
- Shad defends Something Fierce by Carmen Aguirre
-Anne-France Goldwater defends The Tiger by John Vaillant
