AbeBooks' Reading Copy

Canada Reads

I was delighted to see that my favourite novel, Not Wanted on the Voyage by Timothy Findley, was one of the five Canada Reads books this year. Canada Reads is a lively and highly-followed discussion (at least here in Canada) where five celebs (O.K….Canada’s version of a celebrity) defend their choice on CBC radio. Each day one book is voted off and then the winner is the recommended read for all of Canada. The other books being discussed are:

Brown Girl in the Ring by Nalo Hopkinson
From the Fifteenth District by Mavis Gallant
Icefields by Thomas Wharton
King Leary by Paul Quarrington

You can check out the discussion on the CBC website.
