It has been a year, yes, a year since I started inflicting myself upon the blogosphere. So to those of you who have faithfully followed my fairly random thoughts and interests, thank you for popping by. I started this blog with a mind to scribbling about crime related writing and thoughts, (and shameless self-promotion) but it has strayed away from being entirely crime related and into the wider world of literature, with the odd bit of life thrown in for good measure.
Please, continue to drop in. My fragile ego relies on looking at the stats and seeing if anyone actually does bother, so it is gratifying to know people do, and some even comment on the blog, and in real life, which is lovely and most welcome.
One of the things I started was my Ngaio Marsh Reading Challenge, where I am working my way through her 32 novels. That reading had stalled for a while when life became a little chaotic, but is now on track with a vengeance. So anyone out there who likes a little Ngaio, and I know there were some converted to the cause at the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival, join me in a nostalgic trip through murder and mayhem.
For those who prefer a different taste in retro, here's a couple of reading challenges for you. I'm dabbling in both.
The Agatha Christie Reading Challenge:
Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise has instigated this challenge to read your way through all of Agatha's works. See here for the details.
The Sherlock Holmes Reading Challenge:
Mac at Mac Captures Crime has taken up the Sherlock Holmes Challenge. See details here.
