introduction, and a link to all the related posts on this challenge.
I signed up for the "Down-on-her-luck-Gumshoe", and I'm happy to say that I've met the challenge! Well, actually, I continued it further. Unfortunately, I ending up reading more cozy's than anything (I read three for the challenge!) so I didn't actually meet the higher level "Shamus" Challenge.
This was really fun. I've always liked mysteries, and it was a good incentive for me to read more. I think, it would have been easier if I stayed in Singapore, but I suppose being in Japan just added to the challenge. Now, as I decide which challenges I'm going to tackle next year, I'm going to have to consider my budget and the Project Gutenberg/Manybooks websites.
I have no regrets participating in this challenge. I don't think I'll do it again next year, but I'll probably revisit it sometime in the distant future.
