Tomorrow, August 11, the very successful Crime Fiction Alphabet meme comes to its final letter for the year: Z
It has been an exciting journey with some great recommendations for crime fiction readers. In the week beginning Monday 18 July I will be putting up some summary posts but you can check the postings for individual letters at Crime Fiction Alphabet Reading Challenge
Currently I am collecting submissions from readers about their best crime fiction reads so far in 2011.
See Best Crime Fiction Reads 2011: mid way report
On August 1 we will begin a new meme: Crime Fiction on a EuroPass
These challenges don't necessarily involve participants in new reading for the challenge itself (although a list of books that you'd like to read could be a result), but allow you to point to books you've already read, or reviews you've already written, or to dabble in a bit of research.
Although the challenge relates to crime fiction reading, you don't have to be a crime fiction addict like I am to participate. Crime Fiction on a EuroPass begins on August 1. The blog post has a Mr Linky where you can sign up.
Check out the countries we'll visit in the 12 week schedule.
