Vintage Scattergories: Progress & Wrap-up
All right, 2013 is here! On your mark, get set---Read! This is the place to track everyone's progress for this year's Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge and also to link reviews, if you review the books you read. There will be two linkys--one for reviews and one for a wrap-up post. If you do not have a blog, please submit a final tally of books read in a comment below. I will accept updates through January 6, 2014.
ALSO: As a special incentive for me as your host to get out there and really check out your wonderful reviews** AND as an incentive for YOU to keep an eye on what your fellow challengers are reading....This year I will be making a list and checking it twice in preparation for Christmas 2013. Well...the end of the challenge year, anyway. As I make my way through the linked up reviews, I'm going to take notes and prepare a Challenge-Ending Scavenger Hunt. Taking a cue from John at Pretty Sinister Books and his devious trivia contest, there will be a quiz and prizes to win. I haven't quite decided whether I'll be looking for quotes or plots or just send you all on a cover scavenger hunt. But I promise to make it worth your while.
**I really fell down on the job this year--my apologies to all my returning challengers. I just didn't get around to peek at the reviews in 2012 the way I had previously. It had nothing to do with the quality of your reviews or the books you read--it was all a time crunch. I'm hoping to relocate those lost hours in 2013.
***UPDATE: Review Copy Offer for Vintage Mystery Challenge Participants! Bello (an UK imprint of Pan Macmillan) has offered up review copies. Please my post-- Attention Vintage Mystery Challengers -- for details.
