Yay, lots of Canlit! I will be looking for suggestions from your reads (and will hopefully be reading a fair few Canadian books myself). Have a great reading year!
Yes, this year will be a lot of CanLit. I have a lot on my shelves waiting to be read so I should be good to go.
I'm sure I will learn a lot about Canadian lit from you challenge. Have a wonderful year.
This is obviously the place to come for Can Lit ideas! I, too, am hoping to delve into more works by Canadian authors.
Lots of CanLit, that'll be interesting for me. Canada is a country I have yet to visit, both physically and through books. Enjoy your reading!
24 & 25 - I hope you find something to read from my CanLit choices, there's lots out there.
Great reviews! I was particularly interested in your review of Death with Interruptions. It is one of my favorite Saramago reads, particularly for his portrayal of death with a little "d". ;-)
I liked is portrayal of death with the little "d" as well, it had a uniqueness to it, and made you more sympathetic to death.
Dropping a comment so that I get to follow your thread - happy reading! (I'm a little behind, so apologies for the generic comment - better to come, I hope.) :)
