  10. Grandma's Little Darling is number seven for me. A 1990 horror novel set in Minneapolis, it is not recommended. Great cover, though!

  11. The Micmac: How Their Ancestors Lived Five Hundred Years Ago is #12 for me. And it has travel - "In their big canoes they traded and raided..." Plus reading about history is a form of time travel IMO. #Canbookchallenge

    1. History as time travel: good point! One I can agree with. My uni degree was history & literature and I really feel they go together perfectly in this way.

  29. I am at 11 Canadian books, which matches my birth month! Hurray to November! Two are about travelling. Unfortunately one of my own cats has been missing and "The Incredible Journey" gave some encouragement, although one month to my baby's dearly-felt absence of four. Prayers for his safe return have been appreciated all this time.

    If subsequent linkies could please hold more than 50 characters, it frees less-fiddling for things to fit. Loved notice about future themes. Without an idea, I withhold books in case they need to fit some other month. It's nice to proceed ahead decisively. Hugs to all! Carolyn. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/reviews-canadian/
