I've challenged myself to read all the Edgar Award winners for Best Novel since my birth. In 2011, I read up through 1989, so 2012 is the year of the 1990s. To learn more about the challenge and sign up, see my post announcing the challenge. This is the first challenge I've designed myself, so I'd love to have you join me!
