Just finished the 6th Canadian book for this challenge: 419 by Will Ferguson. So now I've read 2 of the 5 Giller Prize shortlist. I hope to get to Ru before the end of the month too.

indiscriminatecritic said...

Ru brings me up to 6/13. It's not a book geared to everyone's taste, but it might be my favourite read of the year.

Now at 5 with The Salterton Trilogy by Robertson Davies:

Tempest-Tost
Leaven of Malice
A Mixture of Frailties

Christa @ Hooked on Books said...

It has totally slipped my mind to link up my reviews. Just added ones for Starling, The Dead I know, Seraphina and The Witch of Babylon. Which brings me to 4/13

gypsysmom said...

I guess I'm KD now since I just added my seventh book (Ru by Kim Thuy). This is also the third book from the Giller shortlist that I have read which is probably the most I have ever read from the shortlist. Of the three I've read I think The Imposter Bride is my favourite but I suspect 419 will win.

Eric P said...

Gentleman Death brings me to 7/13. I have a hectic week coming up, so I suspect I'll stay at 7 for Oct. and pick up again in Nov.

Nicola Mansfield said...

Now at 17/30
