Calendar of Crime 2022: My Sign-Up


As mentioned elsewhere on the Block, mysteries are my go-to read, so filling up a Calendar of Crime with all sorts of dastardly deeds is an easy challenge for me. The goal--to read one month-related mystery book per month for a total of 12 books (or more, if you'd like). If you'd like to join me, just click on the link.

I can't seem to sign up. I thought I had in October, but nothing shows up.

a question: how can I interpret the prompt "chinese zodiac"? is it relating to the author's born? or when the book is set?

Bev Hankins said...

goldmoon: You are welcome to interpret it any way you would like. The animal from the zodiac could appear in the title of the book, for instance. Or you could use the Chinese zodiac year as author's birth year, book publication year or year when the book is set. As long as you can make a connection for me if I ask, then you've got a wide open field.

Nan: You have signed up and are all set. I hadn't yet posted the link to the challenger sign-up sheet. It's now on the Headquarters page (linked to the left).
