HarperCollins March Mystery Madness

Friday, Mar 14, 2008 at 11:23am

HarperCollins Canada has launched a blog/contest called March Mystery Madness:

We're hoping that everyone finds March Mystery Madness blog worthy. It's a massive, really fun online event we're running over the next six weeks: 64 books, 4 conferences, tonnes of "games," and one ultimate winner. Essentially, it's the NCAA basketball tournament only with mystery books.

Battling mystery titles, hype, games and the chance to win 65 great mystery novels. What's not to love?

Thanks, Ragdoll

Those who are bored with run-of-the-mill book clubs may want to check out Oprah Scmoprah:

Why Listen to Oprah, When a Dozen Other Women Could Tell You What to Read?

Originally an online book club, we found that our tastes were beginning to diverge so much that instead we started this blog to recommend books to each other, and to discuss books that more than one of us had read. Come on in, read the discussions, and post your own recommendations!
