The panelists were all EXCELLENT and I really enjoyed Canada Reads 2014. So much passion about literature, it was inspiring.
I think that this year's Canada Reads was one of the best ever. And I see from the best seller's lists in the Globe and Mail that The Orenda is at the top of the Fiction list and many of the other contestants appear on the Top Ten Canadian Fiction list. And that doesn't even take into account all the people who take them out of the library. My library system has 82 copies, almost all of which are out at this moment with 201 holds in place. Canada Reads has a tremendous impact.
