Summer Reading Project: 100 Great Mysteries

At the same time that I’m trying to thin out my bookshelves in preparation for my move, I’ve also taken on a new reading project.  I found this list of the 100 Top Crime Novels of All Time, according the Crime Writers’ Association, on Wikipedia.  Since I was looking for some decent mystery recommendations anyway, I jumped.  And so far I’ve been able to find several of these either free (thanks, Gutenberg project!) or used (thanks, Smith Family!) or via the library, so all-in-all, not a bad way to start.

So, here they are, the 100 Crime Novels I Might Try Reading, which I’ll try and return to update as I go through.  And probably, I will fail at that, but… it happens.  I’m also keeping track on GoodReads.

If it has an X by it, I’ve read it; if it has a $, I’ve bought or otherwise acquired it.  An * means I’m reading it now. Links all go to the respective Wikipedia entries.

It’s not an exhaustive list, or probably even a correct one, but it seems… achievable for not too much money.  Forward: Challenge!

    Can’t wait to see what you think of The Moonstone. One of my favorite novels from History of the English Novel II.

    It is on my desktop, waiting to be read at work next week (assuming I finish Oliver Twist before I get back).
