Canadian Book Challenge: 2022-2023: 06/30/23

17th Canadian Book Challenge

July 1st, Canada Day, is also the starting day for the annual Canadian Books Challenge. It's been running for sixteen years and year year will be the fifth year of it being hosted on the Canadian Bookworm blog.

I have been participating since 2009. While the official goal is to read thirteen (or one per province/territory). As I've changed how I schedule my reviews, I'm making my personal goal as something between 13 and 52 reviews. Last challenge I managed twenty-four.
