2013 Vintage Mystery Challenge

This challenge is new to me and a bit complicated but will challenge me in new ways. My new Kobo Glo enabled me to download old mysteries for free which will be a great way to learn how to use the e-reader. I have chosen the following Vintage categories:

1. Colorful Crime - "The Red House Mystery" by A.A. Milne (yes, that A.A. Milne) (1922)

4. Leave it to the Professionals - "The Mystery of Orcival" by Emile Gaboriau, featuring Surete detective Monsieur LeCoq (1867)

6. Yankee Doodle Dandy - "The Works of Edgar Allan Poe" (1800s)

7. World Traveler - "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins (1868)

14. Scene of the Crime - "The Mystery of a Turkish Bath" by E.M. Gollan (1888)

16. Locked Rooms - "The Mystery of the Yellow Room" by Gaston Leroux

20. Murder is Academic - "Love Lies Bleeding" by Edmund Crispin (1948)

22. Repeat Offenders - "The Hound of the Baskervilles" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1901)


  1. Welcome, Debra! I'm so glad you're joining us this year. You've got some good ones on your list! I've read all but "The Mystery of Orcival" and "The Mystery of a Turkish Bath." I'll be interested to hear what you think of them.

  2. Wow, Bev! You are a real vintage reader. I will be following your blog and learning.
