I can see a lot of uses for this in writing class. Thanks for the suggestion.
I especially like to hear about books by Canadian authors – we don’t get many of those in HK and Australia unless we specifically order them :).
How could I emphasize the Canadian aspect even more, Janet? So far I’m just tagging the posts if they belong to a Canadian author.
I think you’re doing just fine. It’s just nice to have such a variety :).
Ok thanks. I would love to have Canadian books stand out more. Thanks for the feedback, Janet.
