Hello all!

I so missed doing this challenge last year that I had to get back in. So I'm on the board with 1/13.

2 up this month. (So far. The TBR pile has more Canadians in it. My, we're a prolific country, writers-wise, aren't we?)
1st was Outside the Line, by Christian Petersen, and 2nd was The Lost Salt Gift of Blood, short stories by Alistair MacLeod. I'll try for something a bit more "cheerful" for my 3rd!

Hi John,

I am at 9 books read and reviewed.

I hope you're not as hot as we are here in Ontario. Phew....100 plus degrees for 3 days in a row.

Take care John!

My first book for the 7th challenge is Look For Me by Edeet Ravel.

We're not haying this year, which is rather odd-seeming but quite a nice break, so I'm taking it easy these past few days reading in the shade instead. Two more just added, so Gabrielle Roy's Enchanted Summer and Farley Mowat's Owls in the Family put me at #3 & #4 for July. And I've just assembled a nice little TBR pile full of Canadians, so more will be coming soon.

Hope everyone is having a good summer so far,
Barb (in B.C.)

Book # 6: Gabrielle Roy's The Road Past Altamont. (And now I must seek out Street of Riches, of course!)
~Barb (in B.C.)

And Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson makes 7. (I read this early in the month, and couldn't let it go without a review.) Excellent book. Check it out, if you haven't already. (It was published way back in 2000, so I'm way behind the curve in my discovery of it; you've probably all read it already!)
