Reading Canada, 2009

My goal this year is to exclusively read books by Canadian authors.  Sound edifying? You might be interested in participating in John Mutford’s The Canadian Book Challenge 3 over at The Book Mine Set. For my part, I have read so far:

The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
Outlander by Gil Adamson
Fruit by Brian Francis
The Fat Woman Next Door is Pregnant by Michel Tremblay
Mercy Among the Children by David Adams Richards
A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel
Robertson Davies: A Portrait in Mosaic by Val Ross
Widdershins by Charles de Lint
Roughing it In the Bush by Susanna Moodie
Nil: A World Beyond Belief by James Turner
Drawing on Type by Frank Newfeld
Therese and Pierrette and the Little Hanging Angel by Michel Tremblay

Hello I’m Special by Hal Niedzviecki
Hanging of Angélique by Afua Cooper
