2013 Mystery / Crime Reading Challenge


**Challenge complete.  See my wrap-up post HERE.**

Dates: 1 January - 31 December, 2013
Hosted by: Amy @ The Crafty Book Nerd (now @ A Bookish Girl)

Guidelines:
  • No set number of books.  All novels, short stories, or authors qualify, just so long as the genre is mystery/crime.
  • Anything over 100 pages counts as a novel; five short stories equal one novel.
  • There will be a monthly link for reviews/progress reports.
  • There will also be monthly prizes for participants who link up.
  • You don't need a blog to participate: link up through GoodReads or Flickr.
At the end of the year, participants will receive a rank depending on the amount read:
  • 5 books = Detective 
  • 10 books = Sergeant 
  • 15 books = Lieutenant 
  • 20 books = Captain 
  • 25 books = Chief 
  • 30+ books = Sherlock Holmes
