Sunday Salon - The New Year is underway!

If you are a follower of my blog you'll know it has been an eventful week for me, but surprisingly quite a good reading one too. I've made a good start on my reading for a number of the challenges I've joined for 2011.

If you are interested in book giveaways and historical crime fiction at that, you might like to visit Book Giveaway to celebrate Oz release of THE PERICLES COMMISSION. 
The book giveaways are international though, so do look.

 There's another international book giveaway running at EuroCrime, Barbara Nadel's A NOBLE KILLING.

I'm really pleased to advertise international book giveways. I get indescribably cross when the giveaway is restricted to the US.
As you know, mine are always open to outside Australia, despite the fact that our postage costs to the rest of the world are horrendous, and sometimes more than the value of the book itself.

This week I have published a couple of crime fiction lists of interest:
Next week I'll publish the full lists.

On Monday 10 January, the first in a new series of the Crime Fiction Alphabet commences with the letter A.
It will run weekly for the next 26 weeks (except for perhaps Easter Monday), and you can participate  regularly or occasionally. Join Crime Fiction Alphabet 2011 here. Check Monday's posting.

Kerrie - I agree; I like international giveaways, too, and when I've had them, I've posted internationally. Just seems better that way...

I'm looking forward to your reviews of the books coming up next on your list.

It's great to see Maigret popping up - I must go and read some more. And my thoughts are with you at this sad time.
