Canadian Book Challenge: 2018-2019: 06/26/18
July 1st, Canada Day, is also the starting day for the annual Canadain Books Challenge. It's been running for eleven years and this twelfth year will be the second year of it being hosted on the Indextrious Reader Blog.
Books read and reviewed in 2018-2019
I'm tracking books read and reviewed for the 12th Annual CanBook Challenge.
I have been participating since 2009. With the current challenge that ends on June 30th, I had my best year, managing to keep to my goal of reviewing 52 (or one Canadian book a week). The actual goal is read and review 13 (one for each province).
Last year's theme was the great Canadian Road Trip, which was perfect for my Road Narrative Project. While I didn't read every single book recommended on the blog, I did manage to find and read a number of them, expanding my understanding of how Canadian road narratives are similar yet different from those written and published in the States.
This year's theme is roadside attractions of Canada. So last year the goal was to get from point A to point B. Now I guess we're supposed to stop along the way and take in the sights.

What a wonderful round-up! Congrats on making it all the way to your goal of 52. Can't wait to see what you read while you are stopping to take in the sights ;)

Thank you! I had fun. I want to do more Canadian road trip books since I'm researching American/Canadian road narratives. I have a bunch of books tagged in GoodReads to pick from. Sometimes it takes some tenacity to get hold of the books I want to read.
