Wrap Up of Canadian Reading Challenge 2016-2017

Well, I didn't read as many as I intended, nor did I get read books set in all the provinces and territories, but I did finish the challenge and enjoyed it.

10th Canadian Book Challenge
This challenge is hosted here. I've been doing this challenge for several years, and really appreciate John for hosting such a great challenge. He does a great summary list of books read by participants, both at the half-way mark and at the end, so if you are looking for books, these are great resources. Here's a link to the end of last year's challenge.
