5th Annual Canadian Book Challenge- 7th Update

Last month, a very hectic month for me, evidenced by the fact that I'm a little unsure how it got by so fast, was still quite a productive month for the Canadian Book Challenge participants. As a collective we read and reviewed over 90 Canadian titles in January.

And a hearty congratulations goes out Teddy Rose, who participated in last month's "Missing in Action" mini-challenge. For her efforts, Teddy will receive this wonderful prize pack, kindly donated by Random House:

Yann Martel- Beatrice & Virgil
John Vaillant- The Tiger
Michael Crummey- Galore
Jamie Zeppa- every time we say goodbye
Andrew Pyper- The Guardians
Anne Michaels- The Winter Vault

For February's pack, if you're a Canadian Book Challenge participant and this month if you read and review a Canadian book written by an author who identifies as either L, G, B, or T, let us know in the comments below this post, and your name will be entered into a draw for this prize pack, generously donated by Arsenal Pulp Press:

1. Missed Her by Ivan Coyote

2. Anticipated Results by Dennis E. Bolen

In the meant time, we have an extra day in February this year. Can you fit in an additional Canadian book this month? Share links to your reviews here.

Good timing! Canadian Paul Yee just won the ALA Stonewall Honour last week, and is on my reading lost for Money Boy.

I didn't manage to read any Canadian books in January. Must do better in February! I'll head to the library where I will cruise for an LBGT author.

I'm still at 6 books (please move me up to Williston Lake).

Wow, I hit the jackpot of books this month! Thanks to John and Random House!!

Oh crap! I had the perfect author for this challenge - Darren Greer, who's written Still Life with June and Strange Ghosts: Essays, but I've just packed most of my books up for storage and I don't think I have them here now. Not sure I have anyone else who's LGBT and Canadian...

Congrats to Teddy! Awesome prize pack!
