I have been participating since 2009. While the official goal is to read thirteen (or one per province), my personal goal is 52 or more. That means posting at least one review of a Canadian book each week. My Canadian book review day is Tuesday.

Last year's theme was roadside attractions of Canada. This year the theme is Indigenous languages of Canada. It works well with my goal of diversifying my reading both for pleasure and in my Road Narrative Spectrum project.
