Listen up – again!

Reblogged from Moonlight Reader



I am still working on getting everyone’s contributions added to the Crowdsourced! list. 

Do me a favor, and scroll aaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way down
to the bottom of the list and check the comments. Make sure that there is a link to your
list pasted into one of the comments.

This is the only way I know to keep track of everyone’s lists and make sure all of the books get added to this awesome list. If you don’t see you, put a link in a comment for me.


We are up to 374 books on the Crowdsourced! list, which has become a bit of an obsession of mine because it is an AWESOME list!

I want to get to 500 books!

So, dig deep everyone and bring forth your additional 10 or 15 or even 20 “essential” reads. Feel free to advocate for “mainstream” classics, so long as you have actually read them and enthusiastically support their inclusion.

Also, Themis & I are working on a google sheet which will put the list into a downloadable, printable, format. You can view the list here.

If you want to help with the data entry, PM me and I will give you editing privileges as well.

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 […]
