The Many Colored Coat makes 31/13 (and first for June!).

Buried In Print said...

That brings me to 18 indigenous reads for the challenge; I might finish one more this month, Bernard Assiniwi's The Beothuk Saga, but it moves slowly, so it could stretch into July (because also I'm carrying around too many books in the stack as well, as usual).

I reviewed 3 books in the same post, but it is only letting me post the link once. So the link entitled Kate (Bone and Bread) will take you to reviews for:
Bone and Bread (Saleema Nawaz)
Mary, Mary (Lesley Crewe)
Bones Never Lie (Kathy Reichs)

Which brings me up to 12 books read and reviewed!

Swordsman said...

Made it 13/13 and should end up with one extra. A little off my usual pace

Hi there,

I am ending this year on a pretty high note. I read 241 books! I am very happy about my reading this year! What a year it has been!

John! I will miss you! Thank you for all the work and energy you have put in the Book Mine Challenge. I will continue the challenge and look forward to connecting up with you from time to time. You have been so inspiring and uplifting over the years!

cmriedel said...

I wonder what everyone's Manitoba books are. Mine are numerous and regular but if I looked, I probably hit all the provinces each year. Irene, thank you for your nice note. We try to for a personal touch rather than only reporting in, very appreciated. Can't help wondering how many of those 241 apply to my challenges! :)

Thank you for the prizes and review-listing over the years, John. My Canadian tally is 56! Two reviews to catch-up. HAPPY 150th CANADA DAY! Carolyn www.CMRiedel.Wordpress.com

Teena in Toronto said...

Just finished #63 ... "Resilience: Navigating Life, Loss, and the Road to Success" by Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx

John Mutford said...

I believe that's 36 for me.

Congrats to everyone crossing the finish the line. Thank-you for the kind words Irene and Carolyn- they mean a lot. I've been sick these past few days (hence the slow reply), but it was a nice pick me up.

Irene Roth said...

Hi all,

I decided to add one more book review before this year is through. So, I am at 242/13.

What a year it has been!!!

See you in July all!
Irene Roth

Eric P said...

Mavis Gallant's The Moslem Wife and Other Stories makes 35/13 for me.

I think I can squeeze in one last review tomorrow. (Famous Last Words...)

Thanks again, John, for running this for so long! It's been a blast.

I'm glad that we can keep this going next year as well.

Melwyk said...

"Maud" brings me up to 13 reviews for this month, whew, I did it! My total is now 156 - 13 for each month :)

Thanks John for creating & running this most wonderful challenge for 10 years! I'm so happy to be able to carry it on -- hope to see you all over at The Indextrious Reader for version 11 too

John Mutford said...

37/36 Thanks Eric and Melwyk!

Eric P said...

The Lamp at Noon makes 36/13. I'm done for the season...

cmriedel said...

Glad to boost people up. What were your Manitoba reads, John and everyone? I do a variety. There were two Margaret Laurences, including her wonderful children's story that is a movie! I stood on her doorstep in December. Would be nice to visit when her museum is open. Happy 150th Canada Day! All of my Canadian authors are listed at my blog here, where there also the quartet of challenges I run from February. :) Yours truly, Carolyn. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/reviews-canadian/

I did not have time to link up my June book before I went on holidays, but here it is:

Raging Star by Moira Young (Dust Lands, Book #3)

http://darlenesbooknook.blogspot.ca/2017/06/book-review-4-out-of-5-stars-for-raging.html

That brings me to 5/13. Hopefully, I'll do better next year! Must read more Canadian authors!!
