Read Local! The 100 Mile Reading Diet
How cool is this! The 49th Shelf has just launched their Read Local Map. If you haven’t checked it out already or haven’t added a book, please do: it’s really quite fun and you’ll be helping to build the largest map of Canadian books ever assembled. If this is the first time you’ve heard of the campaign, a little background: it’s 49th Shelf’s celebration of the places—the various geographies—represented in Canadian books. It’s our tribute to the fact that the Canadian books have the power of reflecting our country back to us … they reveal new parts of it and also intensify our connection to the places we love. What a fun thing to do this summer!!!
