Comments for the Canadian Book Challenge #5

The Canadian Book Challenge #5: 06/01/11

Canada 05

My favorite reading and book blogging challenge is The Canadian Book Challenge. Although I'm not Canadian, I have family members who are, like a soon to be two year old niece. So in honor of my family to the north I do this lovely challenge. It runs from Canada Day (July 1) to June 30th. The goal is to read and review 13 books in that year. For the Challenge #4 (2010-11) I finished a month early but I am already starting to plan for Challenge #5.
