Today is a wet wet wet Manitoba day. A perfect day for just sitting around and reading, and thinking about books.
I’ve decided on my reading list for the 4th Canadian Book Challenge. Although there’s no set requirement, I decided to go with John Mutford‘s suggestion to read one book set in each Canadian province and territory. This should help me learn a bit more about life in different parts of Canada, and also help me to kick my habit of choosing books mainly set in Montreal (it just seems to happen that way!).
This is my reading list:
Yukon: The Tent Peg by Aritha van Herk
Saskatchewan: Who Has Seen the Wind by W.O. Mitchell
Quebec: Cockroach by Rawi Hage
PEI: Ann of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
Ontario: Fauna by Alissa York
Nunavut: Rankin Inlet by Mara Feeney
Nova Scotia: The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
Northwest Territories: Tatsea by Armin Wiebe
Newfoundland/Labrador: Annabel by Kathleen Winter
New Brunswick: Nights Below Station Street by David Adams Richards
Manitoba: A Jest of God by Margaret Laurence
B.C: Hey Nostradamus by Douglas Coupland
Alberta: The Outlander by Gil Adamson
I hope I’ve got the correct setting for each book. If not, I’ll soon find out when I read them!
I’m so excited to read each and every one of these books.
