Canada Also Reads: Come Thou Tortoise

The National Post's Canada Also Reads, a response to CBC's Canada Reads, has announced its inaugural winner: Come Thou Tortoise by Jessica Grant and defended by author Neil Smith.

The contest's winner was voted on by readers - Come Thou Tortoise won with 43 per cent of the vote - making it more interactive than the CBC contest. Canada Also Reads made a concerted effort to feature lesser-known books in an effort to promote a wide range of Canadian literature.

Congratulations to Jessica Grant and Neil Smith. And congrats also to The Afterword (the National Post's literary blog) for putting on such an engaging and successful book-battle.
