A couple weeks ago I got an email from the Canadian Children’s Book Centre about Amy’s Marathon of Books. Inspired by Canadian icons Terry Fox and Rick Hansen, Amy plans to read 356 young adult books by Canadian authors in 2014 – books from every province and territory in the country. The goal of the project is to promote Canadian children’s literature, while raising money to fund a new teen book award.
How much do I love this? So much that I’m taking the challenge, too, albeit on a more limited scale. I’ll be reading 13 books, one from each Canadian Province and Territory, and will post my reviews on Anything Can Happen Thursdays. I’ll post my full reading list and schedule at the beginning of January.
If you’re inspired, you can find out how to join the marathon here. Or, click the button below to make a donation. Canadian authors will love you, either way!
Speaking of Canadian book love, the Fox Talk giveaway closes tomorrow – head over to Mother Daughter & Son Book Reviews to enter!
