The nation is focused on five books right now thanks to Canada Reads 2014: Joseph Boyden's The Orenda, Kathleen Winter's Annabel, Rawi Hage's Cockroach, Margaret Atwood's The Year of the Flood, and Esi Edugyen's Half-Blood Blues. These books are excellent, and they are also a fraction of the excellent books by Canadians they might consider–there are so many that can change the way we are and how we define ourselves–for the better. This is a list of more. More reads we're going to send to Jian and the panelists at some point this week. Tweet us to add to it!
