  17. Hi all,

    I am 70/13.

    I hope you are all reading spooky books this month! I haven't yet. But I will be going to my local library soon to discover what they have.

    Keep warm and let's all read!

  19. Target 2067, science writer Leonard Bertin's 1968 book that imagines Canada at our bicentennial, brings me to eight.

    (I write this sitting in the second floor of a 19th-century house, and not the 201st storey of a 21st-century skyscraper, as Bertin anticipated.)
