On this week's program, we heard what books Canadians have enjoyed and are looking forward to for the rest of the season. Not only for the on-air program, but also for Checkup's annual list of good winter reading.
We heard from a lot of genres... fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry and the only rule was that the book had to be available either in print or as an ebook.
Our question this week: What's your recommendation for Checkup's annual winter book list?
