Ready for Another Challenge? It's Not Too Late.

I just ran across this uniquely Canadian challenge, courtesy of Lynn Bornath's Canadian Books and Authors Blog. The Canadian Book Challenge runs from July 1 to July 1 and it is in its third year.
From Canada Day to Canada Day, can you read and review at least 13 Canadian books? Starting July 1st, 2009 and ending July 1st, 2010, I challenge Canadians and non-Canadians to read 13 or more Canadian books. Pick fiction, pick nonfiction, pick poetry, graphic novels, picture books, plays, etc-- if it's Canadian and if it's a book, it's in.

Better yet, choose a challenged Canadian book.

I love the idea of reading 13 banned Canadian books and tried to come up with a list, but fell short. I had A Handmaid's Tale and a few others, but found it pleasantly surprising that there didn't seem to be many. I don't want to be too naive though. What ones have you heard of?
