Teena, Nicola; I might not match you ladies this year but my 34 are respectable. Everyone: very nice, to see you finishing and exceeding in time! Sorry to hear about Gordie Howe. Happily, our kitty McCartney Hendrix (beside me on his own office chair) enjoyed his sixteenth birthday last week. These are pretty much photo shoots, as I do my best to follow our kitties inside & out on their special days. Hopefully looking at our camera. :) Yours warmly, Carolyn. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2016/

Heather said...

Hi John, my earlier comment was a bit wrong, Birdie should be book 10.
Sweetest Kulu is book 11
City of the Lost is book 12

Thanks. One more to go.

FYI ... the link to my blog is wrong on your right top sidebar. It should be "http://www.teenaintoronto.com" not "https://www.blogger.com/www.teenaintoronto.com".

Eric P said...

I hope everyone caught the greeting I left for all of you, even shouting out some of y'all by name. HAPPY CANADA DAY: well done! Nice to see warm words like Sharon's and enthusiasm like Heather's and Swordsman's. Everyone's finishing touches are happy, as I am with mine. 38 will do it this year. Eric, I always push right to the wire! :) I hit all provinces except North West Territories and Newfoundland but got snippets of them in compilations.

My variety is good too, all but poetry this year. Kids, non-fiction, education, mysteries, classics, paranormal, photography books, and even the prime minister's memoir and two of Michael J. Fox's. My biggest surprise was "From Anna" by Jean Little. I expected it to contain depressing "coming of age" woes. It turned out to be a rich, memorable portrait. Yours in Manitoba, Carolyn http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/reviews-canadian/
