  21. Technically, these are the third and fourth Canadian books I've reviewed since Canada Day but because of massive life events happening right after I signed up, I haven't kept up with posting. So...I guess they're 1 and 2! (Unless I can go back and add to the other months?)

    1. Hi Kaley -- you can just add any Canadian titles that you've read and reviewed since July 1, but haven't had a chance to link up yet, to the current linkup post. They close at the end of each month so you can't go back, but you can add them at any time.

  26. Posted on behalf of RIEDEL FASCINATION:

    Aha!  We need to go back to 80 characters, or fitting names of
    moderate size means taking time to juggle.  Loved getting a preview of next month's theme and better still:  thank you for drawing me a
    December's winner!  I explained with my kitty missing over winter
    (back by spring, we pray):  every good sign, all goodness means a lot.

    Seeing "RIEDEL Fascination" on the blog roll would be awesome too.  As Melanie knows, I have run challenges for 5 years, which start February 1.  Would love to have you for mysteries, spiritual, paranormal, fantasy, Celtic, colours....  I am at 17 books, including a translation!  Xoxo, from Carolyn in friendly Manitoba.
