Time For The Canada Day Blog Hop!



I can't believe that summer is finally here! It's time for BBQing, sitting outside in the backyard reading ... oh and I'm sure letting the kids run wild at the park will be a daily routine too! We have no big plans this summer but I do have many fun day trip ideas: the Toronto Zoo is a must every year, it's been a while since I've visited the CN Tower (even though I work down the street from it!), a Toronto Argos football game, plus maybe a trip to Niagara Falls and a stop at the family cottage! Happy Canada Day everyone!

To celebrate, you can win a $10 Gift Card from bookdepository.com!  Since this is in honor of Canada Day, there will be TWO steps in this giveaway (and you must do both!) To enter, leave a comment with the name of a Canadian author (click here if you need some hints) you love, then fill in the form below.

Next Stop: Pass The Chiclets

  2. I'm a big fan of William Gibson, although I haven't yet read his latest. So many others I need to read, or read more of: Charles de Lint, R, Scott Baker, Guy Gavriel Kay, Robert Charles Wilson, Robert J Sawyer, Steven Erikson.

    As you can tell, I'm mostly a sci-fi/fantasy fan, though I've been branching out a little into some horror/thrillers lately and will ALWAYS accept recommendations for other writers I should read.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
