The Emperor of Paris is #23 for me. I am trying to read one book set in each province and territory in 2013 but obviously this one doesn't count. So far I have read:
Healthy, Wealthy and Dead by Suzanne North (Alberta)
The Age of Hope by David Bergen (Manitoba)
Away by Jane Urquhart (Ontario)
February by Lisa Moore (Newfoundland and Labrador)
Flight of Aquavit by Anthony Bidulka (Saskatchewan)

These are some great reading suggestions. And what a tough pace you all are setting!

Forty Words for Sorrow brings me to 5/13.

Nikki in Niagara said...

That makes 38/13

#12/13 Thirty Acres by Ringuet

Shonna said...

I've gone back and started a draft blog post for the wrap-up of this, counting up all the books I submitted. I think I haven't been commenting as much as I should, as my count after Speaking from Among the Bones is 27 books read.
Will try to get to 50, but that will likely be a stretch at this point.

gypsysmom said...

The Wildfire Season is my 24th read for the challenge and my book for the Yukon in my own challenge to read one book set in each province and territory.

Swordsman said...
