Hold onto your books, people, because if Day Two was any indication, the Canada Reads debates are heating up.

The panellists had some thoughtful and, at times, emotional exchanges with each other over the remaining books. When it came time to vote, Craig Kielburger chose Ru, Kristin Kreuk (whose book Intolerable was voted off Monday) chose And the Birds Rained Down, while Cameron Bailey opted for When Everything Feels like the Movies. However, it was Lainey Lui and Martha Wainwright who turned out to be the deciding votes, each selecting The Inconvenient Indian as the next title to go. To see Thomas King's book ousted on Day Two was a shocking moment for many people, who voiced their surprise on social media.
