Read Canadian Award Winners 2012 Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!

Since I am Canadian, I just had to join this challenge which is being hosted by ExUrbanis.

Here are the details copied from ExUrbanis' blog:

Read Canadian Award Winners 2012 Challenge

Here’s the scoop on the ways you can enter:

• Toe-dipper: one book from the list of award winners of each of “main” prizes: the Governor-General’s Award, the Giller Prize, and the CAA Prize. (Total 3 books)

• Chance-taker: one book from each of the “main” lists plus one from the First Novel Award winners. (Total 4 books)

• Bluenoser: One book from each of the “main” lists plus one from the Atlantic Book Award winners. (Total 4 books)

• CanLit Lover:
one book from each of the five lists. (Total 5 books)

Here’s a list of the prize winners:

Governor-General’s Award for Literature
Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction
Giller Prize First Novel Award
Thomas Head Raddall Atlantic Fiction Prize

P.S. Yes, crossovers with other challenges are allowed and you don’t have to choose your books now.

I think I am going to have to aim for the CanLit Lover!
If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.

I am going to keep track of my progress below:


  1. Welcome to the challenge, Darlene, and thanks for joining up! Here's to a year of reading Great CanLit!

  2. Hi Darlene. I'm going to be doing a wrap-up post for this challenge in a couple of days and I'd be happy. to link to your wrap-up post. Please let me now the appropriate URL ta debbie(at)exurbanis(fot)com

    1. Hi, Debbie. Unfortunately, my wrap-up post won't say much because I failed this challenge miserably :(

      I didn't even get 1 book read!! Tsk, tsk. Any chance you'll be hosting again for 2013?
