20 Books of Summer


Thanks to the Puzzle Doctor over at In Search of the Classic Mystery I have discovered another Reading Challenge that doesn't interfere with my "Read from the TBR" plan for 2016. It originates at the 746 Books blog – and it shouldn't prove too difficult. The challenge is to read twenty books over the summer (technically the 1st of June to 5th September). And last year I managed to squeeze in 39 books over that same time period--so here's hoping there is no reading slump in my immediate future. Cathy has graciously allowed me to count books read since June 1 even though I'm late out of the gate for signing up. It also looks like we're supposed to plan ahead and give a reading list--but like Cathy, I reserve the right to change my mind if needed.

Here we go:

1. Murder in Amsterdam by A. J. Baantjer (6/3/16) 
2. Midnight in Lonesome Hollow by Kathleen Ernst (6/4/15)
