Now that I've completed the Dewey Decimal Challenge, I found another which is right up my alley, so to speak. Bev at My Reader's Block is hosting the Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge. Here's her introduction to the challenge:
*You are welcome to count these books towards any other challenges as well.
*Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. Sign up any time between now and November 30, 2011.
*I would love to see reviews of your challenge books, but it is not necessary to participate. If you do not have a blog, post to the comments what your challenge level will be and then post again at the progess site (see below) when you have completed your challenge (include a list of books read).
*No matter what level you choose, please try at least two different vintage authors.
*The best part? A prize for everyone who completes their challenge. Once you declare your challenge level...you are locked in for that number of books. But you may change your list of books at any time. Let me know when you have met your challenge goal and I will send you a list of prizes (books) to choose from. Of course, the earlier you finish, the longer the list of books will be.
*Please post about the challenge on your blog (feel free to grab the image) with your declared challenge level.
A Reminder of the Challenge Levels:
In a Murderous Mood: 4-6 Books
Get a Clue: 7-9 Books
Hot on the Trail: 10-12 Books

*I am going for the "In a Murderous Mood" level and have my first review up for Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie 1934. (Thank you to Bev for allowing a retroactive post. It was posted February 6, 2011.)
