Canadian Fiction/Non-Fiction Reading Challenge

This group was inspired by the Fifty States Fiction (or Nonfiction) Challenge and the Europe Endless Challenge. We will follow the same basic idea, attempting to read at least one book set in each Canadian Province or Territory. I have separated Newfoundland and Labrador for this challenge as I believe books can be found for each setting even though they are grouped into one province. Some persons may choose to read both a fiction and a non-fiction title for each location.

The rules are simple:
1. Read a novel or a nonfiction work set in each province and territory.
2. Books can be read in any order.
3. There is no time deadline; however, some persons may wish to set their own personal deadline.
4. You may count books read from 1 January 2009 forward. (I'll be flexible and allow folks to add books read in previous years if they wish, but most of us will choose 2009 to present.)
5. Have fun.

Each participant will probably wish to start his or her own thread to review progress toward completion.
