No one said it? I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! Can't wait to see how John represents Manitoba and am always gung-ho to help on our front. This is writing territory! Challenge for a northern book accepted. You couldn't roll it out before I posted "The Inuk Mountie Adventure"? No, it's okay: I expected this category and reserved.... "Tiktala! A gorgeous Inuit novel by a Winnipegger, autographed. I'm in the draw and am at 16 books! Always eager to see the next category.

Glad you used the new e-address; remember to snip hotmail. Cover those plants, folks. Overnight frost is blessedly a month late but the game, "How long can our flowerbeds live ~ without being squashed by quilts either" is here! Carolyn.

I'm now at 9/13 with my review of Ransom's Voice which I was lucky to win in one of John's mini challenges. Many thanks to John and to author Gary Dvorkin for the opportunity to read his first book. I'll be adding the book to my Little Free Library, so it is bound to find some new fans.

Hi there,

This month has taken me up to 91/13.

My rough goal was to complete 100 books read and reviewed by the end of the year. I think I should accomplish the goal.

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the fall, and reading of course....
