Once again, it’s that special time of year…time to sign up for next year’s reading challenges! And my first pick for 2014 is one of my favorites, the vintage mystery challenge hosted by Bev at My Reader’s Block.
Every year, the basic idea is the same: Read a bunch of vintage mysteries, with “vintage” being defined as anything published before 1960. But every year, Bev spices things up a bit with some sort of interesting twist on the theme. This year, challenge participants will be playing BINGO on either the Golden Age card, the Silver Age card, or both! Click here to see the cards, get more information about the challenge, and sign up!
I’m going to commit to a fairly simple challenge: one straight-line BINGO (either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) on the Golden Age card.
It will be a challenge, but I’ve got a lot of vintage mysteries on the TBR list for 2014! I know I’ll be starting off the year with Rex Stout’s Fer-de-Lance, which could work for a number of spaces. Beyond that, I’ll just have to see how it goes!
