The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag makes 10/13 for the challenge. It ought to have been posted for November, but I missed the deadline on that.

Gavin said...

I'm up to six...

Mary R. said...

A Trick of the Light brings me to 5/13.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I didn't read any Canadian books during November, but I did notice that my October review hasn't been added to my total (a glorious 2). With my track record, I need every book counted!

raidergirl3 said...

I'm up to 9 books read and reviewed.

I've got more read, just not reviewed yet!

ChristasBooks said...

Just linked up my review of Falling Kingdoms, bringing me up to 5 books

gypsysmom said...

I'm poutine now with Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay. I'm going to try for 13 before the end of the year and then another 13 before the end of the challenge.

rasiqra/revulva said...

just posted my review for book 12 (michael turner's hard core logo)!

honestvarietybooks said...

Anne of Green Gables - First Book!

Jo said...

The link on #14 is actually for 3 children's books:

Hide and Sneak
My Arctic 1, 2, 3
Don't Laugh at Giraffe

I didn't name them all because I didn't realize I couldn't add the same link for each title.

Anyway, they make books 11, 12, and 13 for the challenge. So I've officially completed the challenge! I'll still keep adding books, though, as I have more lined up.

I'm sorry for all the deleted comments! I need to start reading through my comments before I post...

Happy new year to Canadians and guests! My name is still misspelled (I before E!) and aiming at Amazon.ca instead of my blog. Mind fixing it and letting a gal rest easy? :)

Refresher: I call my blog "RIEDEL Fascination" and my dedicated URL is this. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/join-us-for-canadian-authors/

cmriedel said...

I'm happy to share I've attained 9 Canadian authors. Thanks for removing the capcha so I too can participate with comments. :-)
