My 100th Post!!!

I was quite surprised when a few days ago I realised I was nearing my 100th post. Since starting my blog in June, it seems I have reviewed 67 novels, 1 play, 4 books about detective fiction and 4 crime fiction films, which leaves another 25 posts, a number of which are my current contributions to the Tuesday Night Bloggers, a group which puts up posts oddly enough every Tuesday on a different Golden Age detective fiction writer each month. 1,243 more words
