Hi John,

Thanks so much for this opportunity. I look forward to doing this again starting July 1, 2012.

Up to 19. If anyone is interested, the Elizabeth Rex review links to details about a just-opened production of the play in Montreal.

They Shall Inherit the Earth by Morley Callaghan is the eleventh book for my personal challenge which is to read 13 books by Canadian authors who are no longer living.

Christa @ Hooked on Books said...

I reviewed the Middle Grade title Small Medium at Large, bringing me up to 12 titles!

Swordsman said...

This is likely my last book for this challange #21. Looking forward to the next one!

John Mutford said...

Ann's 5th and 6th reviews above.

pooker said...

Okay now this makes me laugh. When I was doing my little review for Red Rooms, I couldn't remember how I came to know about the book enough to go out and order it. NOW I remember! It was all due to John the Enabler's last challenge! I found the book while exploring all of those publishers' links! This book was published by Theytus Books.

I'm at 35/39 now.

Perogyo said...

John the Enabler. *snerk*

Chrisbookarama said...

I'm up to 12/13. Yay! I think I can squeeze one more in before Canada Day!

Shan said...

Ok, now I'm at 19

gypsysmom said...

Klee Wyck is #12 out of 13 for my personal challenge to read 13 books by Canadian authors who have gone to the great library in the sky.

Canuckoid said...

Woot! 13 books so far (that might be it for this challenge)

Eric P said...

Up to 22/13 (including a couple of story collections by Carol Shields). Definitely winding down for this challenge but looking forward to the next one.

Christa @ Hooked on Books said...

Just found out the author of Girl in the Clockwork Collar (Kady Cross) was a Canadian so I linked up my review. Bringing me to 13!

Shonna said...

I've hit an even 100. Slowed down a little on my Canadian reading in the last few months, but that seems a nice round number to leave it at.
I'll save the rest of my pile for the next challenge.

Claire (The Captive Reader) said...

22 now!

Perogyo said...

48!

Bill Selnes said...

With The Taken I have completed my Canadian reading for the Challenge and finished at 15 books. Thank you for hosting the Challenge. It has promoted my reading of Canadian books.

John Mutford said...

Pooker: John the Enabler sounds better than John the Pusher, so I'll take it.

Amy said...

I just added two more, putting my total at 17.

gypsysmom said...

And I did it. Tempest-Tost by Robertson Davies is my thirteenth read for my personal challenge which was to read 13 books by Canadians who are dead. I decided on this challenge after last year's results showed that no-one had read anything by Robertson Davies. I thought perhaps we forget about authors who are no longer producing literary works and I think that would be a shame. Davies and others should live on in the Canadian psyche.

irenesroth said...

Hi John,

I am at 48 books reviewed and read. I should be at 50 by the end of the challenge.

Bybee said...

I'm done! I made it to 14. Fourteen! This would surely put a smile on Alex Trebek's face.

So happy to have ended the challenge on a high note: Running in the Family by Michael Ondaatje.

Faith Hope Cherrytea said...

I've written and posted The Annual Canadian Book Challenge today to let my readers know about it & invite them to sign up for this next yr..
Hoping that's ok with you - everything links to you here, so they won't think i'm hosting it!

Melwyk said...

Hey John -- I am currently at 26. I'm hoping to squeeze in one more review, but who knows......looking forward to Challenge 6!
