The 1936 Club


From April 12-18th, April of Kaggy's Bookish Rambles and Simon at Stuck in a Book are sponsoring a read/blog-athon featuring books published in 1936. All you have to do is read at least one book from 1936 and post about it--that's it. And, if you're especially eager to get started, you don't even have to wait until April 12th. So, hunt around in those TBR piles and see if you can join us! This is a twice-yearly feature that I sometimes forget about. So, thanks to Kate at Cross Examining Crime for reminding me that it's that time of year again...

1936 Books previously read and blogged about:
The A.B.C. Murders (and Audio Version) by Agatha Christie
Thirteen Guests by J. Jefferson Farjeon
The Santa Klaus Murder by Mavis Doriel Hay
Behold, Here's Poison (and Audio Version) by Georgette Heyer
The Talisman Ring by Georgette Heyer
The Lady in the Morgue by John Latimer
Death in Ecstasy by Ngaio Marsh
Dead Man Control by Helen Reilly
The Croquet Player by H. G. Wells
The Wheel Spins (The Lady Vanishes) by Ethel Lina White

Here are a few of the books I am contemplating for the Club:
The Nine Waxed Faces by Francis Beeding
Trent's Own Case by E. C. Bentley
Thou Shell of Death by Nicholas Blake
The Sussex Down Murder by John Bude
The Traitor by Sydney Horler
Thrills by Norman Keene
Murder in Piccadilly by Charles Kingston
Dead Men's Morris by Gladys Mitchell
One Murdered: Two Dead by Milton Propper
Mr. Smith's Hat by Helen Reilly
The Bell in the Fog by John Stephen Strange
Who Killed Stella Pomeroy? by Sir Basil Thomson
Below the Clock by J. V. Turner
Murder in the Bookshop by Carolyn Wells

We'll see which ones strike my fancy. I may read and give full reviews before the official week--but I will also post a brief round-up officially for the Club.
