For some bizarre reason, Feedspot has awarded the crime portion of my reading journal (this thing I'm posting to right now) a slot in their top 50 crime novel blogs for crime readers and authors this year. I am honored because I'm in the company of bloggers I hold in great awe.
I actually started doing this for my own entertainment, since my husband travels a LOT for work and I needed something to occupy my time, but now I'm addicted to doing it. Lately I've been picking an overall topic to sort of guide my reading -- this year it's a brief history/survey of crime fiction through World War I. I like to think people read what I have to say but I don't count on it and I'm not doing this to be noticed, but because I think it's fun. This year has been an eye opener in terms of the history of crime literature, and not just in terms of the fiction.
So thank you people at Feedspot, and to anyone else who happens to land here.
I may never get here again, but I'll always have the badge:
Congratulations. You deserve this award for writing a very interesting blog and the variety of books read.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Kathy. I have a lot of fun with it and it's helped me to find a LOT of interesting books off the beaten mystery/crime path.Delete
