I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post my progress with the gold bingo challenge but up to this point, commencing from January 2014 I have completed the following categories:

Read one book set anywhere except the U.S. or England: The Chinese Maze Murders (1957)

Read one book that features a crime other than murder: Malice in Wonderland (1940)

Read a book published under more than one title: The Case of the Abominable Snowman (1941)

Read one book with a number in the title: Lock 14 (1931)

Kate: Looks good to me! What a lot of Golden Age reading you've done--it's hard to believe you haven't made a Bingo.
