Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

2. Tied up in Tinsel by Ngaio Marsh

3. The Twelve Deaths of Christmas by Marion Babson

4. The Christmas Crimes at Puzzle Manor by Simon Brett

5. The Christmas Night Murder by Lee Harris

6. Shrouds of Holly by Kate Kingsbury

7. A Christmas Visitor by Anne Perry

8. Envious Casca by Georgette Heyer

9. The Twelve Crimes of Christmas by Waugh, Greenberg & Asimov (eds)

10 "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Very creative list. I think you must love mysteries! Ha! (How did I guess?) My selections centered around books my family and I read aloud each year.
