It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

Currently Reading:
The Bat by Mary Roberts Rinehart:
Someone--or something--is trying to frighten Cornelia Van Gorder to death. But the plucky patrician doesn't scare easily. In fact, she's always longed to play detective. Until she stumbles on a corpse one storm-swept night, and realizes she's involved in a deadly game with an elusive killer known as The Bat.

The Fire Engine that Disappeared by Maj Sj√∂wall and Per Wahloo: The cunning incendiary device that blew the roof off a Stockholm apartment not only interrupted the small, peaceful orgy underway inside, it nearly took the lives of the building's eleven occupants. And if one of Martin Beck's colleagues hadn't been on the scene, the explosion would have led to a major catastrophe since-for reasons nobody could satisfactorily explain-a regulation firetruck has vanished. Was it terrorism, suicide, or simply a gas leak? And what, if anything, did the explosion have to do with the peculiar death earlier that day of a forty-six-year-old bachelor whose cryptic suicide note consisted of only two words: “Martin Beck”?

Books that spark my interest:
Bland Beginning by Julian Symons
A Finer End by Deborah Crombie
