Eight books for people who may move to Canada

At BN Reads Ross Johnson tagged eight books for people who may move to Canada, including:
How to Be a Canadian, by Will Ferguson and Ian Ferguson

If you’re going to move to Canada, you’re going to need a sense of humor (unless you’re going to Montreal, in which case you’re going to want to learn French). Canadian travel writer and humorist Will Ferguson, along with his brother Ian, has some handy tips on living, eating, having sex, and sticking your tongue to a frozen chainlink fence like a true northerner. The brothers aren’t afraid to poke a little fun at their land (Ferguson’s previous book was Why I Hate Canadians), but there’s a fair bit of truth stuck in among the gags. Canadians, generally, aren’t afraid to have a little fun at their own expense. Which doesn’t mean that you should do it, but it’ll help to get a feel for a brand of comedy that’s a bit more self-effacing.
