Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Challenge Complete: 20 Books of Summer


Thanks to the Puzzle Doctor over at In Search of the Classic Mystery I discovered another Reading Challenge that didn't interfere with my "Read from the TBR" plan for 2016. It originated at the 746 Books blog – and it didn't provide too much trouble for dedicated readers. The challenge was to read twenty books over the summer (technically the 1st of June to 5th September). Last year I managed to squeeze in 39 books over that same time period--and I have now completed my 20th book!

Here's my list:

1. Murder in Amsterdam by A. J. Baantjer (6/3/16)
2. Midnight in Lonesome Hollow by Kathleen Ernst (6/4/15) 
3. The Cinnamon Murders by Frances Crane (6/6/16)   
4. A Is For Arsenic by Kathryn Harkup (6/8/16)
5. The Mystery Woman by J. U. Giesy & Junius B. Smith (6/12/16)   
6. The Silent Women by Margaret Page Hood (6/13/16)
7. Certain Sleep by Helen Reilly (6/16/16)
8. The Seven Wonders of Crime by Paul Halter (6/19/16)
9. The Ticking Clock by Frances & Richard Lockridge (7/8/16)
10. Too Good to Be True by J. F. Hutton
11. Murder in Any Language by Kelley Roos (6/21/16)
