I've joined up for the second installment of John Mutford's Canadian Book Challenge. The goal is 13 Canadian books in a year. I generally avoid book challenges as I get far too obsessive compulsive about such things. I like my aimless meandering from book to book far too much to tie myself down to too many rules.
I make an exception for the Canuck challenge for two reasons: First, I really like Canadian books and think more people should be reading them. How can I go around telling people to read Canadian if I don't read Canadian myself? Second, Mr. Mutford runs a really good challenge. I had a lot of fun last time reading people's impressions of some really good books.
