As Teleread’s lone Canadian correspondant, let me be the first to say Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canucks. To put you in the holiday mood, the fine folks at Kobo (which is a much bigger presence here than it is in America) has put together a Canada Day reading list. It’s nice to see some less-often-publicized genres represented here, such as poetry and works by aboriginal authors.
As for me and mine, we traditionally spend this weekend in the company of a particular young relative who is train-obsessed, so I suspect the only reading we’ll be doing will be from our Thomas the Train collection. Think of me as you’re reading your Munro and Atwood!
And Happy Canada Day!
