The Canadian Book Challenge! Let’s Do It!

Okay, so I totally bombed the last book challenge I tried (the banned books one), but I figured it was time to give another one a try since I haven’t read a whole book in who-knows-when. I’ve started several, finished none…barely got past the first chapter with most. I’m going to make another attempt at becoming a more prolific reader, or, well, at least finishing a couple books. (I know – bad librarian, bad!)

This morning I read about the Canadian Book Challenge that the Book Mine Set started a month ago (via Head Tale):

In case you haven’t been challenged enough lately, here’s another to add to your compulsive need to push yourself to your limit: The Canadian Book Challenge.

The rules are simple: read 13 Canadian books (books by Canadians and/or about Canadians) before next Canada Day (That’s July 1st for you non-Canadians in the audience).

I haven’t picked my first book yet, and I’m already a month behind in the challenge, but I can do it though! I know I can! :-p
