  1. Sadly, my count now stands at three, but not for lack of trying. I picked up May Agnes Fleming's novel Edith Percival thinking it would be a fun, fast summer read, only to discover that my old Street & Smith copy (c. 1917) was just the first half - and that the publisher had sold the second half as a "sequel" titled Caught in the Snare. And so, I read that, too.

    I counted it as one because I'm honest... more honest than Street & Smith, anyway.

    1. Yikes, that's worth at least 2 books! Hope your next one is more concise to make up for it!

    Happy unofficial Fall all!

  9. Burma Chronicles is 3/13 if I count the 2 Canadian books from August I was too late to create a link for. My August books were Indoor Voice by Jillian Tamaki and My Best Stories by Alice Munro.

  19. Third this month brings me to 5/13 with The Last Neanderthal. Wasn't thrilled. My next Canadian book, though, that I just finished but haven't yet written the review for, is OUTSTANDING. (American War by Omar El Akkad.)
