A quieter week here on MiP.
I did manage to get my 130th book for the year finished. They are listed on Smik's Reviews.
Just a reminder that I have a book giveway running of an exciting new novel, due to be released in the US on 4 January 2011. You have until Christmas Eve to enter.

This week, on December 22, the final edition of the year of the Agatha Christie Blog Carnival will be posted. If you read and write about Agatha Christie novels in your blog, you might consider joining the Carnival next year. It runs monthly around 22/23 of the month.
Other things to do:
- Suggest a Christmas Title: use this to link to any reviews you've done this year of Christmas related books.
- Sign up for Crime Fiction Alphabet for 2011. Each week, beginning Monday 10 January 2011, you have to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week. Your post MUST be related to either the first letter of a book's title, the first letter of an author's first name, or the first letter of the author's surname. This is really an easy meme to participate in.
- Looking forward: I'll be collecting your "best crime fiction reads" for 2010 early in 2011. Stay tuned.
