As My Whimsy Takes Me Challenge

Cristina at Rochester Reader is sponsoring the As My Whimsy Takes Me Reading Challenge. All Lord Peter Wimsey all the time. How could I resist? (I know I say that about every challenge...)

If you'd like to join in, the more the merrier! She will be reading the books in chronological order and we are welcome to join her in that endeavor or just dip in and out during the year. It's quite informal but a review of the books you read would be appreciated. Help yourself to the button above and link your reviews and/or posts back to her page as well as a comment on the post so she can add your review.

Hi and thank you for visiting my blog! I'm so glad you've joined the Challenge and thanks for including the details in your post.
I look forward to reading your thoughts about the novels and will visit your charming blog often. I'm also a mystery fan and I'm very tempted to join your Vintage Mystery Challenge! :-)

I have never read Dorothy Sayers. Sounds like an interesting challenge.

Good luck!

Take care,
