Canada Also Reads

If you are Canadian, you've probably heard of Canada Reads, but have you heard of Canada Also Reads sponsored by the National Post?

Well, one of my all-time favourite books has been long listed in the Canada Also Reads competition: The Day the Falls Stood Still by Cathy Buchanan. I just adored this beautifully written book (my review). I haven't read any of the other books, but I've heard good things about a number of them. It looks like a good competition.

Anyway, the winner will be determined by public vote. Make sure you follow along and vote for your favourite when the time comes. I don't have to tell you where my vote will go. ;)

Good Luck Cathy!


  1. I haven't read any of those books. oops.

  2. There are a couple I even haven't heard of, but there's still time to catch up.

  3. Thanks for posting this, Marie. Fantastic.

  4. You're welcome Cathy. Your book deserves to win!


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
