Kerrie’s rules are simple:
“Your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book’s title, the first letter of an author’s first name, or the first letter of the author’s surname, or even maybe a crime fiction “topic”. But above all, it has to be crime fiction.”
It was fun last year coming up with a weekly post and reading the posts of other participants. Several weeks there were multiple posts of the same author or even the same book. The differing perspectives added to the enjoyment of the meme.
My posts from 2011 can be found through clicking the label on the side of the blog for the Alphabet in Crime Fiction.
It is easy to become a participant in this year’s meme.. Click here to reach Mysteries in Paradise and follow the instructions.
There are already 8 bloggers signed up to take part in the meme.
While the meme does not start until May it has prompted me to think about what I will post this year. I have taken a look at my reading over the past 12 years and am going to try to make each post about an author. I have read books by authors whose first letter of the surname covers all the letters of the alphabet.
It is going to an interesting 26 week journey through the alphabet.
Bill - I am very, very glad you're going to be a part of this meme. I know I'll learn from your posts. I suspect, though, that my TBR and book buying budgets will suffer ;-).ReplyDelete
Margot: Thanks for the comment. I believe the world would be a better place if the worst addiction more people had was buying books faster than they read them.ReplyDelete
I read about the Alphabet in Crime Fiction meme at other blogs, including Kerrie Smith's blog, and would have liked to be a part of it. However, there are two reasons why I won't: while I read a few books every month, I don't have the time to review them. Second, I read more than crime fiction and I just might forget my alphabets along the way. A meme requires dedication. I look forward to reading the reviews of other participants in the meme.ReplyDelete
I'll look forward to your posts with interest, Bill. I found quite a few authors "new to me" via doing this meme, as some of the letters presented quite a challenge!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the support BillReplyDelete

Maxine: Thanks for the comment. The meme last year opened up the world of crime fiction for me.ReplyDelete
Kerrie: Thanks for dropping by the blog. Less than 2 months to the start of the meme!ReplyDelete
