Perfect timing, I just picked up Cody MacFadyen's The Face of Death at the library. It will do nicely for 1. HE'S DEAD, JIM! Read a mystery with either DEAD, DEATH, DIE or DYING in the title. I must go and figure out my list soon.

I have started wtih the Historical Fiction challenge because those books are bigger, but am looking forward to get through some of my mystery books. I am doing a reading challnge in the Games Forum, I will read one book out of a series I have already started and I have lots of them to try to get through mostly mysteries. What are folks starting with?

I actually started with a book for the classics challenge that is also a mystery--Monsieur LeCoq, by Emile Gaboriau--written in the late 1800s and considered to be one of the first detective novels.  So far so good.

I'm starting with a recent release - The Language of Bees by Laurie King. I started this morning and it is a very good book. Debbie

I am ready. I am in 4 challenges this year. The HF challenge, HF ABC challenge, Classics and Mystery challenges. My first book is Atlantis by David Gibbins which is my NIce to Meet Ya challenge here in the mystery Forum.

I started a blog to track the books I read, and review them. I had it all set up, then I tried to install a new background and lost my lists.  So I have to go back in to set them up when I have time. THankfully, I have my challenge lists here!!

I'm excited to do this, my first challenges ever...mysteries and classics.  I find it hard to discipline myself when it comes to reading, lol, so this will force me to try some new things.  :)
