Hey, that's me!
There's a great article in the Globe & Mail today by Kate Taylor about (mostly) Canadian book bloggers and reading challenges. I don't necessarily agree that the Canadian Book Challenge is competitive (unless competing with oneself counts), but it's a well-written, balanced, and thorough article. I loved hearing from Nicola, a CBC4 participant, from Jen at the Keepin' It Real blog, and the others (even those who don't see the appeal of book challenges). Check it out!
*Update: For those looking to join the 5th annual Canadian Book Challenge, more details on how to do so are here. And to get a sense of how to complete the challenge, check out the inaugural post of the 4th edition. There you'll also find some FAQs.
