2014 Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge

After successfully completing last year’s Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge, I’m going to try to do the same in 2014.

The rules to this year’s challenge are explained over at My Reader’s Block. Basically I’m going to be trying to complete the Silver bingo card which covers books first published in the period 1960 to 1989.

  3. Wow, that’s a great challenge – good luck!

    Looks like a really interesting challenge, almost makes me sorry I have sworn off them this year…
