1. #ReadTheNorth This Canada Day
This wouldn’t be a Canada Day edition of Bookmarks without some Can Lit! This week, Chapters Indigo spread the Can Lit love with a #ReadTheNorth campaign where they encouraged readers and authors to share their favourite Canadian reads on Twitter (all whilst wearing beautiful Read the North t-shirts!).
