Cheers to Canada Reads 2007!

I've made it no secret that I'm a huge fan of CBC's Canada Reads program. I get all giddy thinking about it.

I remember getting into it in their 2nd year and at that time I loved checking out all the online discussions they had on their website. Since then, while the show has always remained stellar, I've found the website lacking. I'm sure they had their reasons, but online fan participation seemed to have been discouraged, if not banned altogether. This year however, they've made up for it in spades. They are posting fan comments again and continue to raise new, provocative questions. Even panelists and authors are getting into the action. Great job CBC!

You know what? I haven't even checkout out their website in ages. How slack of me! I have to go look into it - thanks for the reminder. I am getting excited about the actual contest!
