Crowdsourced: State of the List — WE DID IT!!!

 
UPDATE 2

We did it!!!

Here’s the list:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qYl32e0L3R3X_82XldWaCOt2naBFtvoJsaQY8zzUU3E/edit#gid=0

Thanks to the final submissions by Jennifer, Ani and Lora, we’re up to 1001 exactly!  How cool is that??

_______________________________________________

UPDATE 1

Including all submissions up to right now, we have room for another 27 books.

Romance and horror preferred.

(Note: the spreadsheet “technically” goes as far as line 977, but the first 3 lines are notes and headers, so they don’t count.  The first book is listed in line 4.)

_______________________________________________

Guys, we totally rock — once I’ll have added today’s most recent submissions, we’ll be in spitting distance of our 1001 goal!

So I’m going to ask for a moratorium on submissions, with two exceptions:

1) We need more romance novels (and also a bit more horror) — the list is currently lopsided in favor of other genres.  Calling all readers of these genres to top up their submissions!

2) Hol and A Voracious Reader have indicated their interest in submitting suggestions; if possible, I’d want to leave some space for them.

Thank you all!

Anthony Berkeley: Murder in the Basement

This is middling Berkeley, not as problematic as The Wychford Poisoning Case or The Silk Stockings Murders, but OTOH also a fair way from the (mostly) enjoyable and intelligent writing that are The Poisoned Chocolates Case and Trial and Error. I rather like the setup — a body found by accident in a place where […]

Phoebe Atwood Taylor: The Cape Cod Mystery

The Appointment with Agatha group’s January 2022 side read: my first book by Atwood Taylor (though I’d heard her name before) and almost certainly not my last one. I’m not entirely sold on the main investigator, Asey Mayo; he comes across as rather too mannered and the book might have benefitted if the first person […]

Zora Neale Hurston: Dust Tracks on a Road

Definitely the best book I read during the first week of the new year; the New Yorker pretty much nailed it when calling the book “warm, witty, imaginative” and adding “This is a rich and winning book.” I’d (finally) read Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God last year; having now read her autobiography, I recongnize […]
