There are a lot of readers out there who read the occasional mystery novel, and quite a few who read only mysteries. The Internet is chock-full of resources to help mystery fans make sure they’re never at a loss of what to read next. The one we discovered this morning is Murder, Mystery & Mayhem: A Resource for Readers.
The site includes several useful features:
- a blog that reviews new books and announces new titles.
- links to other mystery-related blogs.
- links to booklists (such as the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association’s “100 Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century” and “The Top Crimes Novels of All Time”).
- links to winners of eight different awards for mystery novels
links to mystery authors’ websites.
MMM is so useful that we’ve added it to the other resources in our Booklover’s Toolbox (see the tab at the top of this blog), so you can easily find it next time you need it. Look for it there under both “Booklists” and “Mystery Novel Resources.”
A postscript to anyone who hasn’t yet visited the Ponce Branch Library: unlike some public libraries, we no longer shelve our mystery novels in a separate section of the building – they’re shelved alphabetically by author’s last name along with most of our other novels. We’ve placed the letter M on the spine of each mystery novel, however, to make them easier to find while browsing.
