Canada Reads Debate Begins Today

The Canada Reads debate begins today.  I’ve read four of the five books; here are my reviews:

The nominee I didn’t read is the non-fiction book The Right to Be Cold by Sheila Watt-Cloutier.
“The former head of the international Inuit Circumpolar Council and nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, author and activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier chronicles the impact climate change has had on northern communities and makes the case that this environmental crisis is indeed a human rights issue. Weaving together environmental, cultural and economic issues, Watt-Cloutier makes a passionate and personal plea for change” (

I’m hoping for The Break; it is the best of the novels.
