Thankfully there were 12 weeks for the journey unlike my 1981 bus tour when it was if today is ----- we must be in -------.
I read a variety of different mysteries ranging from the early 19th Century to current days.
They were written from the 1950's to 2010.
Several were authors I read for the first time and I would not have encountered them but for the meme.
Switzerland was the most difficult nation for me to find a book. I searched bookstores and ordered through the local library but the interlibrary loan was slow. Finally on a trip to Regina, 300 km from Melfort, I tracked down The Pledge in one of the suburban libraries of the Regina Public Library.
It was a great trip and I thank Kerrie for hosting the tour.
On Friday I will discsuss my favourite posts from the dozen I put up for the trip.
