2014 Book Challenge COMPLETED: The Vintage Mystery Challenge


Every year I sign up for the Vintage Mystery Challenge hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block.  This year, Bev added a Silver level, but I only participated in the Gold level, reading mysteries published before 1960.

There is a BINGO theme this year, which mixed it up a bit.  Luckily for me, the rules allowed for one wild card or freebie, or I was stuck.


The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie (book with a COLOR in the title)

What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw (aka 4:50 from Paddington) by Agatha Christie (book with a NUMBER in the title)

Death in the Air (aka Death in the Clouds) by Agatha Christie (book with an AMATEUR detective)

A Man Lay Dead by Ngaio Marsh (book with a PROFESSIONAL detective)

The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey (book set in ENGLAND)

Enter a Murder by Ngaio Marsh (FREEBIE: book set in the ENTERTAINMENT world)


  1. Congratulation, RCR. I am aiming for a full-house and hope I'll be able to do it before 31 Dec.

  2. CONGRATS!!!

    I am a chicken when it comes to challenges. I don't participate, but I do like to see what other have accomplished.

    THANKS for sharing.


  3. 'Tis the season for wrapping up book challenges! Congrats on finishing. I like the notion of the Bingo card--I may give one a whirl next year.

    I love Daughter of Time--such an interesting premise for a mystery. Made a Ricardian out of me :)
