Another One Bites the Dust....

One more Challenge complete. This time it's my very own Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge. Given that vintage mysteries are my primary love in the reading world, this one wasn't all that difficult. Of course, it doesn't help my cause any when I pick up two challenges for every one that I complete. As with my other completed challenges, I'm not done with vintage mysteries just because I've completed my goal of 16 or more. I'll still be reading and posting about those good old classic crimes.

Here's my list for the challenge:

So does that mean you get to win your own prize? Good job, Bev. I'm still moving along at my own slow pace. We do, after all, have a year. Theoretically.

No prize for me. I was just playing along for the fun of it.
