I thought I'd start this thread so I can give you guys updates and answer any questions about the progress of the Challenge.

As you might notice, I've switched things around a bit. I was supposed to read Crackpot this summer, but didn't get a chance (I only managed the first few pages). I meant to read Vimy simultaneously and didn't get around to that one either. And I'm still reading Canadian Poetry through WWI. So what I've decided to do is to continue with Poetry and pick up Vimy this week (just in time for Remembrance Day, coincidentally), and move Crackpot into December (officially set for December 3rd, but I'm not sure exactly when I'll get there). A Mixture of Frailties is also scheduled for December, but for me that's an audiobook, so I should be able to catch up with all my planned CanLit books for 2011.

The books for the new year will start out with the very short Over Prairie Trails followed by The Tin Flute/Bonheur d'occasion. Spring and summer of 2012 will be taken up with the first two volumes of the Emily trilogy by L. M. Montgomery and Pierre Berton's account in two books of the War of 1812 (just in time for the 200th anniversary), with Wild Geese thrown in the mix somewhere for good measure.

I've decided that instead of making a list (which is rather time consuming anyway), I'm going to add all the list books to the group bookshelf. I'm also going to try out the beta version of the group challenges feature so that group members can track their progress of reading CanLit Challenge books. I don't know exactly how well it will work, but I guess we'll see...
