I finished nine books for this challenge. This is my wrap up post. My nine books are listed below and the nine items I found for the scavenger hunt are checked off on this card:
One of my all-time favorite challenges is the Vintage Mystery Challenge hosted by Bev at My Reader's Block. I did the Silver Version again this year, which involves reading mystery books published between 1960 - 1989.
The Scavenger Hunt involves finding as many items on the list above in the covers of the books read.
