Sunday Salon - 29 November 2009

Imagine nearly 500 readers blogging about their current reading - that's what the Sunday Salon is. All of the contributors' Sunday Salon posts are collected via Yahoo Pipes into a single feed. You can subscribe to it by RSS or email or on Twitter. There is also a Sunday Salon room at FriendFeed, where you can read and comment on all the Salon posts.

Be part of my blog this week
  • Join the Alphabet in Crime Fiction Community Meme.
    Tomorrow my blog will feature the invitation for the letter I. Today see the contributions for the letter H.
    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.
    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'll use a Mr Linky so you can come back to link to more than one of your posts if you like.
  • Have you heard of the Virtual Advent Blog Tour? I'm participating on December 1.
    Each day anyone who wants to participate takes turns sharing a treat with our friends here in blogland. For example it could be something about your family traditions, recipes, your country's holiday traditions, or a favourite Christmas memory, movie, book, song...anything you like. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas we would like to hear about what your family does during the holiday season, whether it be celebrating Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever it is that you do during this time.
    Already 85 bloggers have signed up.
