Weekly Geeks 2009-30: Foundations of Taste in Crime Fiction reading

This week's Weekly Geeks task relates to mystery. As my entire blog is about crime fiction, I thought I'd do a quick post about the writers who are responsible for my delight in reading crime fiction.

I looked at my oldest records and picked out the first 30 crime fiction writers that I have mentioned.
Then I went to Wordle and turned it into a tag cloud.

You might enjoy this post from Musings of a Book Kitty on Why we Read Crime Fiction.

Great idea to use wordle. I love those tag clouds. This certainly gives some ideas about what new authors to try out.

That's really a neat way to do this post!

What a great idea! Of course, I had to read every name. :-)

Thank you for linking to my post, Kerrie.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

I have used Wordle in the classroom, but never thought of using it on my blog. GREAT idea and quite effective.
