Blame Canada?!


My numbers were as putrid as ancient cheese curds for the last Canadian Book Challenge. Five books out of thirteen! I only made it to the Snowshoe level. Mortifying. I let my neighbo(u)rs to the north down badly. If Alex Trebek knew....? No. Some imagined scenarios just can't be borne.

So I thought to myself that I'd skip out on the challenge this year. Not so good, eh? But while I was home (and so much closer to Canada!) I watched Regis and Kelly visit Prince Edward Island. When Kelly dressed up like Anne of Green Gables and reenacted that first book, I started to get maple leaf pangs. Then I went to Minnesota and I was in a state that touches Canada. That did it. I knew I was good for another round.

Yep, I'll start my Canadian reading this month. I'll get caught up to where I need to be. Reading about a place notorious for its cool climate may save me from heatstroke.

I was at one of those Regis and Kelly shows! I saw them tape a show. Regis and Kelly was one of the biggest things to hit PEI since Hurricane Juan.

Good luck with the CBC4 challenge.

Yaaay! You can do it, you know you can, Bybee. Are you missing any Canadian books you wish you had picked up while over in this side of the world? Let me know :-)

I still have to do my post for CBC4,which is going to be all Canadian mysteries this time around.
