Sunday Salon - 13 December 2009

Where is the year rushing away to? December is almost half way over and Christmas is but 10 days away. Are you ready? I'm definitely not.

I'm aiming for about 105 novels read and reviewed by the end of this year, and I've joined J Kaye's 100+ Reading Challenge for 2010.

Be part of my blog this week
  • I'm trying out a Frappr Map on my blog. Pop over and check it out. Add yourself and let's see the community grow.
  • Join the Alphabet in Crime Fiction Community Meme.
    Tomorrow my blog will feature the invitation for the letter K. Today see the contributions for the letter J.
    Another way to get people to visit your blog, and also to meet some new crime fiction bloggers.
    In the last week we had 10 contributions so it is becoming a great way to see recommendations for new crime fiction titles and authors.
    We don't mind if you recycle a review you've already written or just contribute occasionally.
  • I'm running a feature called Suggest a Christmas Title.
    So far we have 30 suggestions.
    You can participate in this whether you are a crime fiction blogger or not.
    What you'll need to do is write a blog post about a book that some how features Christmas. Lots of people I know like to take advantage of the season by reading a book that is set at Christmas or is about Christmas in some way.
    In your blog post you can suggest several books or just focus on one. I'm using a Mr Linky so you can come back to link to more than one of your posts if you like.
  • Do you read Agatha Christie? Do you write about her novels on your blog? Then join the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge, participate in the monthly Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Blog Carnival. The next one will be posted on December 23.
