I'm actually up to 10 books. My full list is here.

Shan said...

Sorry, I forgot to leave my total in the November posting. As of December 1 I'm now at 9 books.

pooker said...

One more for me that I had hoped to get in for November, but my first for December on the 1st will have to do. Now at 15/13.

Swordsman said...

Early start this month with a short but excellent book. Now 9/13

Here's a link to the Toronto Star's top 100 books of 2011:

http://www.thestar.com/news/books/article/1096127--our-reviewers-top-100-books-of-2011-what-s-yours

How many have you read? I've only read one (Linwood Barclay's "The Accident").

John Mutford said...

Teena: Ouch, that made me feel out of the loop. I've not only read 0 of those listed, I've only even heard of a handful. I did note that they seem remarkably anti-literary fiction. I'm not sure if that isn't reverse snobbery...

raidergirl3 said...

Tide Road makes 12/13 for me. Almost finished! Of course,I will continue reading Canadian books.

Ordinary Reader said...

Oh shoot! I messed up the link by leaving out the title and can't find a way to fix it. Sorry! Let's blame my (arguably)temporary insanity on Christmas shall we? The book was Bachelor Brother's Bed and Breakfast. This brings me to 8/13.

Nicola said...

I'm now at 19.

Nicola said...

Teena: I've read three (The Accident, the Alan Bradley and Alone in the Classroom) and own three others in my tbr, otherwise can't say the list excites me much. Haven't heard of most of them.

pooker said...

One more for the weekend. At 17/13. Now for some Christmas baking.

pooker said...

Oh for heaven's sake. I messed up my title. It should be *This all Happened*. Must have been thinking about my gingerbread boys.

Medea said...

17 now
Wow that goes by fast when they are mostly picture books!

Re the Toronto Star list, I hadn't heard of a lot of them either. I've requested some from the library to check 'em out.

I'm very slow this month... I seriously haven't been reading much. I'm waiting for that last week of December to have a break where I can cozy up with a blanket, some tea, and all the books I have on my TBR list.

As of right now, it's 18/13.

Kate said...

OK - I'm up to 3 Canadian re-reads with The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje. I'm behind schedule to finish 13 by the end of June - choosing to re-read books is proving to be more difficult than I thought it would be!

Chrisbookarama said...

I forgot to add the name of the book I read! Whoops. It was The Lesser Blessed by Richard Van Camp.
