#1969book sign-up page


San Diego Police Academy, 1969

Every month on Past Offences I gather together blog posts about crime fiction written or filmed in a particular year. Bernadette chose us 1969 for October.

If you want to take part, you can! When you’ve written your post, just let me know below. I’ll gather them all together at the end of the month.

Anyone can play, so over to you…

Small print

  • Don’t be shy!
  • Just comment below to link to your blog post.
  • If you want to play but you haven’t got a blog, I’m happy to have you as a guest poster, or to link to Goodreads or Amazon.
  • Books, comics, films, plays and TV also welcome.
  • Sorry in advance if I miss you in the round-up, although I am getting better at that bit.

  1. As I got to be selfish and choose a year for which I actually own an unread book I shall sign up with Australian author Patricia Carlon’s 12th book – The Whispering Wall. We are truly bad at honouring (or even remembering) our classic crime writers here in Australia but this one got a re-release a few years back as part of a classics series from a local publisher

    I’ve opted for THE SHIVERING SANDS, by Victoria Holt. Back then I devoured her books. Lets see if I still like them. The title is number 91 on the Good Reads list for 1969

    I’m in…I don’t have a lot of of TBR books from 1969, so I’ll have to see what might work. I did read one earlier this year (as part of my own Mystery Challenge–it called for a birth year book and I happen to be a 1969 model). If you care to add it to the 1969 offerings it’s The Wilberforce Legacy by Josephine Bell.

    I’m in, My choice: Elmore Leonard’s The Big Bounce

    I keep picking books but never get to them on time *sigh*. I plan to read them anyway. Meanwhile, let me see what I have for 1969.

    I will be reading The Old English Peepshow (aka A Pride of Heroes) by Peter Dickinson. That means I first have to read The Glass-Sided Ants’ Nest (aka Skin Deep).
