Canada Reads 2018! 

If you don’t know what that is, let me explain you a thing:

It is an annual Battle of the Books. It takes place on CBC and has been ongoing for the last 16 years! Five books, five defenders, one winner.

From the CBC Canada Reads website: Canada Reads is a “literary Survivor,” with celebrities championing books. Books are  voted “off the bookshelf,” one each day, until one book is chosen as the title the whole country should read this year.

I meannnnnn, amazing right?

This year the lineup looks like this:

The debates take place March 26-29. You can get tickets to attend or you can listen live on CBC Radio One or CBC Books. Or watch on your local CBC station.

For more information, check out the Canada Reads website.
