There's only a few weeks left to decide which of this year's CBC Canada Reads contenders you'll be cheering for. CNN broadcaster Ali Velchi will stand behind Terry Fallis's political satire The Best Laid Plans (McClelland & Stewart). Here, he tells us why this is the book we should all be reading and gives us a sense of his own reading habits.

The Canada Reads debates will air on Feb. 7, 8, and 9th at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. For the latest buzz and a complete list of this year's shortlist, visit the CBC Canada Reads website.
