Vintage Mystery Cover Scavenger Hunt 2017

I love Agatha Christie, I still have many books by her to read, and there are many others authors I want to try (Ellis Peters, P.D. James, Georges Simenon, Gerogette Heyer, Elizabeth Peters). This was my good purpose in 2016 but have failed to respect it. I hope to do it this year.

Hosted by Bev @My Reader's Block


  •   All books must be from the mystery category (crime fiction, detective fiction, espionage, etc.).
  • For the purposes of this challenge, the Golden Age Vintage Mysteries must have been first published before 1960. Golden Age short story collections (whether published pre-1960 or not) are permissible provided all of the stories included in the collection were originally written pre-1960.  Silver Age Vintage Mysteries may be first published any time from 1960 to 1989 (inclusive).  Again, Silver Age short story collections published later than 1989 are permissible as long as they include no stories first published later than 1989. 
  • Challenge runs from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. Sign up any time between now and November 1, 2017.  Any books read from January 1 on may count regardless of your sign-up date.
  • Prizes:  Challengers who complete the minimum six books from a single era will be eligible for a drawing at the end of the year for a book from the prize list.  Challengers who complete 12 or more books (either from the same era or six from each era) will also be entered in a separate drawing--for another chance to win, again for their choice of a book from the prize list. 
  • Cards:
The gold card refers to books published before 1960. 

The silver card refers to books published from 1960 to 1989 (inclusive).
