And that makes two. I fell into a massive reading and reviewing rut - those were read back in July. But, I'm hoping I'm back.

I'm now at 6/13 - I read Wenjack by Joseph Boyden. Now that I'm on Christmas holidays and have time for non-school reading, I've assembled a stack of Can Lit to devour over the next month!

Swordsman said...

Forgot to post The Bologna Cookbook earlier this month. That and Little Sister makes 3/13. A little behind where I usually am in other years but will catch up!

Kate said...

And now up to 7/13 with Secret Path, the Gord Downie / Jeff Lemire collaboration.

Buried In Print said...

That makes 6/13 read and reviewed for my indigenous writers' mini-project. Good luck to all those who are thinking that the holidays will bring extra reading time; they have the opposite effect on my reading stacks!

6/13 with The Hangman

pussreboots said...

Wow! I completely missed this news.

Kate said...

And up to 8/13 with Angel Catbird by Margaret Atwood et al.

Teena in Toronto said...

Just finished #19 ... "Defending the Inland Shores: Newfoundland in the War of 1812" by Gordon K. Jones

Eric P said...

Yellowknife brings me to 13/13! First time I've made it to 13 in December.

I think this may be the first novel I've reviewed set in the North.

Pooker said...

I have also made it to 13/13 by December. The 13th, Journey to Labrador by Bernie Howgate, is non-fiction.

Melwyk said...

Whew, Rose's Run brings me to my 13th review for the month (and was a great read). My total is now at 78. I have a few good Canadian reads on my Christmas reading stack -- hope I can get to some of them in my few days off :)

I missed one in July. I'm up to 16/13. Sorry if this is a double comment. I was signed in as a my daughter.

cmriedel said...

It seems everyone did, Pussreboots. ;> I immediately thanked John but have plenty of enthusiasm to go around: congratulations to you and I for an autographed, cat-related, mystery prize! It was extra fun to win for my birth month!

I am at 22 Canadian books. I read non-fiction from our country all the time: 3/5 of my entries here. Obviously not "That's What Bears Are For" and "Silence For The Dead". I don't mind being first either.... to wish everyone: MERRY CHRISTMAS!

9/13 for me - I finished Yiddish for Pirates by Gary Barwin just before Christmas but just posted my review now.

Swordsman said...

A Boy from Botwood gives me 4/13.

Bill Selnes said...

Safe at Home puts me 8/13

Swordsman said...

Busy Month. Just finished 5/13

Jules said...

And what will probably be the final book review of the year brings me up to 3/13. Happy new year all.

Irene Roth said...

Hi all,

I am at 127 books read and reviewed. I feel great about that! I set a goal of reading 20 books per month starting July 1st. Well, I have exceeded that by 7 books!

Happy New Year all! See you in 2017 for more reading fun!

Happy New Year John! You are the best!

I not only read this book but I wrote it. My first published work. My first ISBN number. Great way to finish 2016. This makes it 6/13 for this challenge.
