Here is a summary of the memes and various "collection" points.
|Crime Fiction 2012
Pick of the Month is an opportunity to tell readers about the best crime fiction that you've read in the previous month. A new meme runs at the beginning of each month.
There are usually 15 or so participants and it is a great way to keep up with what other crime fiction addicts are reading, as well as making your own contribution.
Pick of the Month for June is here.
Best Crime Fiction 2012 asks readers to nominate their best reads for the first six months of this year.
These are not necessarily recently published books and eventually I'll aggregate the various lists and publish them by title and by author.
Readers can participate in this meme even if they don't have a blog, by simply leaving a list of their best reads as a comment.
This is the 5th year I've run this activity and here is a summary post for previous years.
The current post is here.
The Crime Fiction Alphabet invites bloggers to participate in a weekly meme linked to the letters of the alphabet over a period of 26 weeks.
It has about a dozen participants and results in some very interesting lists.
Find out more about it on this page. This week we are up to the letter H but you can join any time, and also miss a week or two if need to.
New to me authors is a quarterly meme that gives bloggers a chance to highlight crime fiction books that they have read in the last 3 months where the author is "new" to them.
Participants are asked to indicate their best reads, so again readers will be able to locate some quality reading.
There is a monthly blog carnival with its own blog site where participants list their reviews of Agatha Christie titles, news items and discoveries, and their progress in the challenge.
The project began in January 2009 and has every sign of continuing indefinitely. It welcomes new participants, whether they are just beginning on their Agatha Christie reading journey, or whether they are already addicted AC readers.
