Chicken Soup has a great new book out, O Canada. It’s 101 heartwarming and inspring stories by and for Canadians. This book made me laugh so hard – I loved it! My favourite quote in the book is from one of my favourite authors, Douglas Coupland : “Canadians can easily pass for American as long as we don’t accidentally use metric measurements or apologize when hit by a car”.
There are some great stories in here about typical Canadian things, hockey of course, going to the cottage, winter etc. I loved You might be Canadian if….by Sheri Radford – so many of them are so true for most of us. Made me think of when I bump into someone’s cart at the grocery store – usually both people say oops sorry pretty fast! 🙂
This is a great collection of all Canadian stories – it was such a fun read. This is the kind of book that would make a good gift for any Canadian – perfect for when you’re not sure what to get someone. There’s stories in here for all of us, really make you appreciate how “Canadian” we all are. Like slurpees and shorts in winter, this book is full of great stories for appreciating those kinds of quirky behaviours! 🙂
And thanks to Chicken Soup, 2 lucky people will each be winning their own copy of O Canada – to enter comment with what makes you “Canadian” – Contest open to all Canadians and will end Wednesday Jan. 18th at noon. Good Luck!
