Hi John,

I have read and reviewed 10 reviews as of July 31st. I just couldn't post this comment until today.

Talk to you soon,
Irene

Linda said...

This is my 3rd book, 'Spirit of the North'. Looking forward to posting many more!

Hi,

Just posted two more reviews, they're from July, but I wasn't fast enough. Now at 6/10 reviews.

Irene - Wow! You rock 10 books already!

Hi John,

1 of 13, though light on the reviewing front. I just need more practice!

Thanks,

The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag, the second book in the Flavia de Luce series, is my third Canadian book.

Hi all. Just posted my 5th review. Let's Kill Uncle, by Rohan O'Grady, aka June Skinner of Vancouver, B.C. A VERY different book indeed!

And many apologies, John, I linked this twice. I didn't think it went through the first time - that may indeed be a bad link. The second one should be OK. I'll get this figured out yet!

Kate said...

OK - I just read my first Canadian book for the 6th Challenge year. Why Men Lie by Linden MacIntyre. Good writing, but the plot could have been more substantial.

Gold Fever is my third book for the challenge.

Am feeling quite behind. This (In Cars) is my first review of the new challenge, but I have a few other reviews I am working on and will try to have posted in August.

Shonna said...

Since Eckhart Tolle lives in Vancouver, I figured this one counts. Puts me at four books.

Oops, forgot to leave a comment about my 4th book for this challenge. 'At Home in the Kitchen' is just what it sounds like, it's a cookbook. And a great one!It's by Judy Walter, who makes her home in Lethbridge, AB.

Jules said...

Hi John, posted two more reviews, now at 8/13.

The View From a Kite puts me at 9 reviews in total. (And I think I will be going over 13 - there are so many Canadian books in my want-to-read pile - even before searching them out on purpose for this challenge. We're a literate nation, eh?!)

And here's my #12 - Confessions of an Igloo Dweller. Have you read this one, John? We all liked it, and I was wondering if you had any opinions on it or any of Houston's other Arctic writings.

I think that's it for my August Canadian reads. :-)

Cat said...

Total read = 3/13

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I've got my first review of the challenge done. Yay me! I'll post the link once that functions opens again. (You will no doubt be thrilled to know that it's another Alice Munro collection...)
