Be part of my blog this week
- When is your favourite reading time?
When and where really. When do you do most like to read? Do you have a favourite place? Leave a comment.
- Join the Alphabet in Crime Fiction Community Meme. Tomorrow my blog will feature the invitation for the letter D. Today see the contributions for the letter C. Another way to get people to visit your blog, and also to meet some new crime fiction bloggers.
- This week I'll also be publishing the latest mini-reviews. If you like the idea try your hand at a mini-review: this is a great way to introduce people to your blog. I don't restrict entrants to crime fiction. I collect the reviews via a Google Doc, and then will feature them towards the end of the month.
- Don't forget I'm constantly collecting material for the Agatha Christie Blog Carnival. Join the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge- a bunch of us are working our way through Agatha Christie novels. I'm reading them in publication order, but not everyone is. Learn what the challenge is about, or simply join it.
- Crime Fiction Alphabet Summarising Letter C.
Crime Fiction Alphabet is a new weekly meme. If you love your crime fiction then these posts will give you new books and authors to look for and you may like also to join in with posts of your own. This week's letter is the letter D. Reminds you a bit of Sesame Street doesn't it?
- Don't Always Hit the Mark #4.
Another new feature. Read about the Queen of Norwegian Crime, Karin Fossum.
- Agatha Christie Reading Challenge Blog Carnival #10.
The Agatha Christie Reading Reading Challenge is alive and well. This is the 10th Carnival for this year with a heap of reviews and pointers to interesting sites. If you occasionally write a blog post about and Agatha Christie book, why not join in?
- Forgotten Books: MAIGRET and THE MADWOMAN, Georges Simenon.
Forgotten books is another way to find out about crime fiction authors who've not crossed your path yet.
- Guest Author: Vicki Delany.
Canadian crime fiction author Vicki Delany tells us why her latest book is different and how writing it was a challenge for her.
- How do you like your books?
This was the week's "leave a comment" feature. Lots of people like the smell and feel of hard covers but I think paperbacks are what most of us read.
- Review: GENTLY DOES IT, Alan Hunter.
Great author, particularly if you enjoy police procedurals or cozies.
- Crime Fiction Alphabet: CROSS BONES, Kathy Reichs.
- Crime Fiction Alphabet (C), week beginning 19 October.
Through Jennifer who recently joined the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge and commented on my blog , I found a counter at NANoWriMo that gives me a button showing my progress on reading the Agatha Christie books. You can see it running in the right hand column.
