The 8th Canadian Book Challenge

I've been doing this wonderful challenge for a few years, and will be participating again for 2014-15

The 8th Canadian Book Challenge goes from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015 and the goal is to read 13 or more Canadian books in the year. Last year I tried for 50 and only got to 45, so will try for 50 again this year.
This year you can adapt your own photos, but I'd love to point people at one of my favourite Canadian photographers, Terri Corbett, and her Creeks Bend Photos.
She's done family photos for my family, but also amazing landscape and nature photos, including quite a few of my family's barn, including one that just won first prize in a Grande Prairie photography contest.
I just saw CBC's quiz, 100 novels that make you proud to be Canadian, and I've only read 40 of them, so maybe I can tackle some of those in this season's challenge.


  1. So glad to have you with us again. Thanks for the heads up about Terri Corbett. Her photos are stunning. And since we're on the topic, I'll also send out a referral to Yellowknife's <a href="!/index>Dave Brosha</a> who also does some incredible work.

  2. Thanks John. Dave has done some amazing photos. I love the ones of the North.
