John of The Book Mine Set hosts this wonderful challenge and you do not have to be Canadian to join. It is my favorite book challenge out there and I have been participating every year from the beginning. I’m not about to quit now. The challenge started on July first, so I a little late signing up.

The challenge is the same as before, to read and review 13 Canadian books. Each participant gets to decide if a book qualifies for the challenge or not but basically if it’s by a Canadian author, is about a place in Canada, or takes place somewhere in Canada, it qualifies.

I will keep track of the books I read for the challenge below:

We are hosting it this year over at Historical Tapestry again for 2012. I am only signed up for 4 challenges this year and this is one of them.

In an effort to diversify the genres I read, I am aiming for “Struggling the Addiction: 10 books”.  I may up going up one level, if I find it impossible to stay away from that many historical fiction novels, they are my favorite, after all!

If you haven’t done so already, go over to Historical Tapestry and join the challenge!

Here’s a start to my list for this challenge:
