***PRIZE ALERT!!!***

As this is the last month for the 6th Canadian Book Challenge, as an added incentive for those participants that have not yet reached the goal of 13 or more books, if you do so this month (and it's your last chance!), you will have your name entered in to win Four Homeless Millionaires by Rik Leaf!!!
Rik's story is truly an inspiring one! If he can do this, surely you can do that.

I'm the first one to submit a review for June. I've never been in that position before. Backtrack by Harold Johnson is my 36th Canadian book for the 6th challenge. I'm going to try for 3 more before the end so that I've done 3 times the requirement.

Peggy Ann said...

I'm ashamed to say this is #9 for me :( but the month isn't over yet!

Debra Wilson said...

8 out of 13 - I'm pleased, given that I only started in January!!! Think I'll rest up now until July 1 and start fresh.

John Mutford said...

And that makes the big 5-0!

Shonna said...

The Underwater Welder brings me up to 35.

Jules said...

Technically mine is from May - I got myself behind in my post. 57 book read so far!

Swordsman said...

Just finished Stanley Barracks which is book 15 and likely the last book for this challenge. Currently reading a non-Canadian book. Looking forward to the next challenge!

TracyK said...

Just added my 13th and final book for the challenge. Next month I will be starting on the 7th Annual Canadian Book Challenge. (Please don't enter me for the book giveaway.)

Linda Maendel said...

I've just added book number 14. I've enjoyed the challenge. I hope everybody reaches their goal. Go for it!

Take care,
Irene

FleurFisher said...

Books 3 to 5 just linked, 3 more read but not written about. I might make it to 13, I might not, but either way it's been interesting.

Peggy Ann said...

Number 10!

Luanne said...

One more making it 16!

Nicola Mansfield said...

oops entry 26 that was me! Nicola.

That makes a total of 46 books for me at this point, not sure I have anymore coming up this month.

pussreboots said...

I'm at 27 books read & reviewed now.

pussreboots said...

I've completed 28. I suspect this will be it until the next challenge starts.

Bill Selnes said...

I have reached 11 of 13.

ChristasBooks said...

Today I reviewed Days that End in Y which brings me up to 10 books!

ChristasBooks said...

Realized I also forgot to link up my reviews of (You) Set Me on Fire and The Oathbreaker's Shadow from earlier this month. Bringing me up to 12! Only one more to go.

Hi John.
Ringing the Changes by Mazo de la Roche puts me at 63 for the year. I *may* have a few more to add; some reviews are pending. I did say I would try to review every Canadian book I read this year, and I am missing just a few... we'll see how this next week or so goes!

Luanne said...

latest entry brings me up to 17 John.

canadianbooksblog said...

Hi John,

I made it! I am 70 books read for this 6th Canadian Book Review Challenge! I am very excited that I completed what I set out to do!

I can't wait for the 7th canadian book challenge!

Take care,
Irene Roth

Nicola Mansfield said...

47!

The Indiscriminate Critic said...

8 of 13 for me. Not looking good for me getting there by the end of June. Hopefully next year will see me with a better sense of priorities...

Shonna said...

This gets me to 36.

Shonna said...

37 now, with Travelling Light

Heather said...

HI John, have 14, 15, and 16 up now. All three are from the Rapid Reads grouping at Orca Books. Great not only for adults with low reading skills, but also for reluctant readers as well as ESL and when you want a good but quick read.

gypsysmom said...

I just submitted a review for Not Being on a Boat by Esme Claire Keith which is my 37th Canadian book since the challenge started. I'm reading another Canadian book right now but I don't know if I will get #39 read before the challenge is over. So I guess I won't get to my ultimate goal of 3 times the requirement.

Luanne said...

One more for 18/18

Bill Selnes said...

I am now 12 of 13.

leavesandpages said...

James Houston's "Zigzag" puts me at #64. And I think that might be it for me! Looking forward to the 7th season of the CRC. :-)

leavesandpages said...

One more!
A Doctor's Pilgrimage puts me at #65. Grand little book which I picked up on a whim, the memoir of a Nova Scotia doctor in the 1930s & 40s.
~Barb

Teena said...

I'm finishing this challenge with 23 books :)

cmriedel said...

Raise me to 32, John! I'm content with a finish that doubles the contest and reaches 30. Should the self-competitor in me digest another 2 in due course, I'll enter an update.

I'm really pleased with the big girl I've been. :) I didn't stick to mystical or mystery favourites like Lyn Hamilton. I branched to history, classics, literary fiction, children en français, young adult, Aboriginal, and the disabled perspective. I've gathered a very good haul!
Happy Canada day from Carolyn M. Riedel! www.CMRiedel.WordPress.com

Kim Aippersbach said...

This is my 9th book. I really want to win your prize book, so I'm going to try to cram 4 more books in tomorrow!

Kim Aippersbach said...

Oh, oh, oh, I just discovered that a book I reviewed back in January is actually Canadian! That brings me up to 10 books! (Is it okay to link to a January post in the June Round Up?)

Three more to go. (I always leave things to the last minute, despite all my best intentions.)

Melwyk said...

Okay, with my last read -- a great one -- "When I Was Young & In My Prime", I made it up to 40 Canadian reads reviewed this year. I am SO looking forward to another year of this challenge!

Kim Aippersbach said...

There! Just reviewed 3 more, bringing me up to 13! (I know, I don't look so great next to all you guys with 40 or 50. But I still get to enter for the prize, right?)

Perogyo said...

I am up to 43, might get another review up under the wire. Crossing my fingers!

John Mutford said...

Ending the challenge with 55.

Luanne said...

Sneaking my last two in on the last day bringing me up to 20 for the year! See you in Challenge 7!

Danielle said...

Just finished Louise Penny's Still Life. I managed 9/13 books, but hope to do better next time around! :)

cmriedel said...

I did it! For the satisfaction of surpassing 30 as much as I could muster, I got in 2 more. It may be prudent to accumulate tokens for next year's rank but my final entry broadens my horizons most of all. If you can find "FOR THE BIRDS" by Dr. Paul Hiebert, get this: he's a poet, essayist, and humorist! I feel grown up for sure.

Carolyn of 'RIEDEL Fascination' concludes with a healthy 34. www.CMRiedel.WordPress.com

sam lamb said...

almost forgot this one - road to bliss by joan clark. 12/13 for me. one more to write up before midnight!

Mary R. said...

Link #75 was my 13th book for the challenge. I posted and linked a couple days ago, but had a weird internet connection and couldn't comment. I finished before Canada Day and read some excellent books. I am excited to start reading for #7.

sam lamb said...

posted! the end of the alphabet by cs richardson. 13/13!
