I haven't quite got all of the books organized in my mind yet for this particular reading challenge. Some I'll gather as I go along and some I'll pick up along the way as new books come out this year. Regardless, I wanted to keep a master post for The Canadian Book Challenge
like I've done with the two other lists I've got for this year. As the challenge actually started in October, I'm counting at least one book I've read since then towards my ultimate goal of reading "The White Stripes Way
(From Sea To Sea To Sea)." Here's the list so far:
by Lisa Moore book actually read Air Stream Land Yacht
by Ken Babstock.
Prince Edward Island
: Anne of the Island
by L.M. Montgomery. Book actually read Rilla of Ingelside
: Saints of Big Harbour
by Lynn Coady. Book actually read: The Book of Negroes
by Lawrence Hill.
: The Lost Highway
by David Adams Richards
: My Name is Bosnia
by Madeleine Gagnon, Translated by Phyllis Aronoff and Howard Scott
by Michael Redhill
: See the Child
, David Bergen
: The Horseman's Graves
by Jacqueline Baker
: The Outlander
by Gil Adamson
: Stanley Park
by Timothy Taylor. Book actually read for BC, After River
by Donna Milner.
: I Married the Klondike
by Laura Beatrice Berton
: Late Nights on Air
by Elizabeth Hay
, Zachariah Wells
May I suggest?
Manitoba: The Case of Lena S, by David Bergen. If anyone is to read one Bergen title, this should be it. Plus, it's set in Winnipeg and gets some of the vibe.
And for Nova Scotia, perhaps one of Ann-Marie MacDonald's books (Fall on Your Knees or The Way the Crow Flies)? They may destroy you emotionally though, so be warned...
Those are all great suggestions -- thank you. I have read both Ann-Marie MacDonald books, and enjoyed them both immensely.
What about Lynn Coady's books for Nova Scotia?? Saints of Big Harbour is amazing...and I haven't yet read Mean Boy, but it looks really good.
That is a super suggestion! I hadn't thought of Lynn Coady. I did have a copy of Mean Boy that I think has since disappeared so perhaps I'll put Saints of Big Harbour on the list. Perfect!
