2nd Canadian Book Challenge


I did not participate in the first challenge. But I was excited to see it being offered again for this year. Beginning July 1, 2008, and ending July 1, 2009. The challenge is to read 13 books by or about Canadians. I’ll be focusing on L.M. Montgomery. I don’t know which thirteen. But I’ve included (for my own sanity) a list of all her works. I’d like to get to them all eventually. But probably won’t have time to squeeze them all in. It’s being hosted by John of The Book Mine Set.
