Things to do on my crime fiction focussed blog today: participate in a poll, enter a competition for a free book, add to my knowledge of detective pairs.
Submissions for the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Blog Carnival close on May 22. Get your blog post in if you have recently written any posts about Agatha Christie books. New participants very welcome (submit your past posts too). Check the April Carnival to see what it is all about.
