I'm up to 7/13 now.

Red Stone is my 5th Canadian read for the year and I believe it also meets the monthly challenge of being the first book reviewed by this author during all the years of the challenge.

Congrats to Kate on the book win! I must put down some of those American titles I have piled up on my bedside table and get back to some good old Canadian books!

Well, that's 5 Canadian women in translation so far for this month, since it is Women in Translation month! All Quebec authors - anyone know of any Canadian translations NOT from French?

My total is 18 now.

Paul Quarrington's Whale Music for 3/13.

6/13. I think both of my authors count for the mini-challenge. I can't find them listed: Dean Motter and Maria Leach

Congratulations, Kate. Well met, Shonna and Nicola. Bonne chance! 80% of my contributions are in John's review database for the first time courtesy of moi. These two books answer that call too. I have finished 6. Sincerely, Carolyn. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/reviews-canadian/

Just finished #8!

John Mutford said...

6/13 (YK, BC, ON, NT & 3/13 comics)

2/13 is pretty significant. I was introduced to this author, Theresa Kishkan, right here at the Book Mine Set in, I think, 2008.

7/13

John Mutford said...

7/13 (YK, BC, ON, NT & 4/13 comics)

Nicola Mansfield said...

That makes 8/13 for me and I know this one counts for this month's challenge as it's the author's first book :-)

Bill Selnes said...

Up to 2/13

John Mutford said...

8/13 (YK, BC, ON, NT, NL, AB & 5/13 comics)

Lisa said...

I'm finally making it on the board with 1/13.

Melwyk said...

Okay, that makes it 13 books by women in translation this month -- for a total of 26/13.

I was able to find 2 books translated from Inuktitut among all the French translations I was reading. And I'm pretty sure that those 2 meet the minichallenge as I couldn't find other reviews of Mitiarjuk Nappalluk or Ningeoluk Teevee!

Pooker said...

I'm at 3 for 13 and I think that 3rd meets the mini challenge requirements. Sonja Ahlers was new to me and appears to be new to the Canadian Book Challenge too.

Hill's The Book of Negroes - 4/13
