(By the way, I am also working on the Summer Mystery Reading Challenge for which I have chosen six Edgar Award winning books, so look for their reviews on my blog especially if you are a mystery lover).
It is with great anticipation that I begin your Challenge, 3M, as I consider all the award winning books to be a great foundation for us as readers. Thank you for hosting it!
p.s. Completed books will be highlighted in orange.
