hey John! I'm up to 8/13 now... not 5 anymore! And I've got two more on the go as we speak so hopefully I'll be up again this month! This is such a great challenge and I'm loving the camaraderie!

Kathy McDonald said...

I slowed right down too. I went to Word on the Street last weekend in downtown Toronto and Myrna Dey a reader's choice nominee for the Giller prize (what a looooong long list!) who wrote Extensions was there - I have to read her book. Great October challenge John! That will get me back on track.

I'm keeping up a fierce reading pace these days; I think I'm at 17 for ones that I've written up already. Maybe you could just leave me in Lake Huron for the rest of the challenge year? BTW, Suzette Mayr's Monoceros? I thought it was amazing.

I'm at 9 now. Here's my list.

Melwyk said...

I've been so been busy in September that I only reviewed one book -- and forgot to link it! So here it is in October, bringing me up to 8 books. Hopefully I'll get a few more reviews in this month!

Chrisbookarama said...

I actually reviewed Revenge of the Lobster Lover in Sept but was too late adding it. It's my first book this challenge! I had a Canadian book dry spell.

Jules said...

Finally got my september reviews up! I'm now at 10/13 books.

Burried in Print - you are doing great, how do you get all those books read so fast?

Franklin said...

Well I read a couple books in September but they weren't Canadian, I may need to start a blog called "Books I wish were written by Canadians" I'm working on my books for October now.

Hi John! Sadly I'm only at 3/13 - but I have at least 5 books on the go. I'm reading layers of Margarent Laurence - biographies, memoirs, books, letters... Takes awhile to finish one book this way, but I love the overlaps. Thanks for this challenge!

Paulina said...

I'm a few months late in joining the challenge, but better late than never! I've posted my first review, but messed up and forgot to put the title of the book (Queen of Hearts) in the link.

brainvsbook said...

This puts me at 3/13, which seems to mean I am trailing everyone else. Time to put on my reading pants!

Sarah said...

I'm up to 7/13. Finally got to another one. I can't believe I got off to such a good start and then stall for a few months.

The book I read this month is one that I picked up at Word on the Street in Kitchener. Got to meet the author and learn she is local. Vey cool.

Heather said...

Hi John, Added 8, 9 and 10 today. Will be back with the next in a few days..

thecaptivereader said...

Heather said...

Hi John, just added book 11. I will have to think about your comment on whether we are seeing the death of paper books (no) and will write a post.

I'm a little slow this month. I'm only up to 9/13. Not looking so great for the speed I was going, but I'm sure it will pick up later.

Franklin said...

Hey John

Franklin here (connell_andrea@yahoo.ca
