You have one year to read 13 Canadian books and review them somewhere online, from Canada Day, July 1st, 2010- Canada Day, July 1st, 2011. There will be check-ins at the beginning of each month to see how everyone is progressing and have their current status marked in the sidebar of this blog. Participants are encouraged to read each others' reviews, discuss the books, and cheer one another on.
As always, my books will all be crime fiction.

I did this challenge a few years ago but chose to read a book written by an author from each province. It was difficukt to find books.
What about Inger Ash Wolfe? She's written two mysteries, The Calling and its sequel, The Taken. I haven't read them yet, but I have The Calling waiting patiently. I think there is a bit of a story behind the book, it's written by a Canadian author, but under an assumed name.
I'm about to head to bed with Fear the Worst just getting going - the Dad has just arrived in Seattle.
