Canada Reads 2014: Meet the Top 10


What is the one novel that could change Canada?

That's the question we put to you, Canada, earlier this year. And you answered! Thousands of recommendations poured in from across the country. From that, we created a Canada Reads top 40 (which you can explore here). Your work still wasn't over -- it was up to you to narrow down that Top 40 to a Top 10! The books that made the cut are listed below.

Now you get to sit back and relax, Canada. The panelists are reading right now and will choose their books very soon! You'll find out who they are and what they will defend in March on Wednesday, November 27! There are a few ways to find out, so get all the details here.
