I've Found a New Blog!

I love to find a new challenge! I'm competitive in a nerdy sort of way. That's why I liked being a librarian. Today, I found The Book Mine Set, a reading blog with a Canadian flavour. Did you know that Canada is the home of many authors who are read throughout the world? Every year, in October, I like to attend the Vancouver Readers' And Writer's Festival where Canadian and international authors read from and discuss their latest works.

Earlier in the summer, I read The Navigator of New York, a novel by Wayne Johnston, a Newfoundland author who will be presenting at this year's festival. Although I will be unable to attend the festival, I will be participating in The 7th Annual Canadian Book Challenge at Book Mine Set. In order to participate, you must read and review Canadian books (hopefully 13 before next Canada Day, July 1, 2014). If you are interested in learning more about Canadian books, you will find an assortment of titles on both the Book Mine blog and on the festival blog.

So many books, so little time.

  2. Not sure if I dare click through, although I suspect I won't be able to resist. . . one of the best reasons for retirement might be finding more time to read!
