Canadian Book Challenge 2010-2011 Final Update - Challenge Completed

The Canadian Book Challenge is hosted by John Mutford who blogs at The Book Mine Set.
You have one year to read 13 Canadian books and review them somewhere online, from Canada Day, July 1st, 2010- Canada Day, July 1st, 2011. There will be check-ins at the beginning of each month to see how everyone is progressing and have their current status marked in the sidebar of this blog. Participants are encouraged to read each others' reviews, discuss the books, and cheer one another on.

As always, my books will all be crime fiction.

A Canadian challenge sounds interesting, but also daunting as their books are so expensive to come by.
