Day Four: Discussion


The heavyweight book of Canada Reads 2010, Ann-Marie MacDonald's Fall on Your Knees, was the second book voted off. It seems like its defender Perdita was caught off guard, but were you surprised? In the video confessional, Samantha says she loves the book but voted against it (in the first round) because she saw it as the biggest threat. On air, Simi said that she thinks Fall on Your Knees has had its time in the spotlight already.

Question: Do you think the panelists should choose the Canada Reads winner based solely on the merits of the book, regardless of its popularity? Or, should the winner be something that most Canadians have not already read or heard of?

There is now one day of debate left. By this time tomorrow, we'll have crowned the winner of Canada Reads 2010.

Question: Now that there are only three books left, which ones do you think will make it to the final two? Which book do you think will ultimately get the title of Canada Reads 2010 winner?

Don't forget, Book Club host Hannah Sung hosts a live chat at 3 p.m. ET every day during Canada Reads week, including today.
