>Read It 2011

It’s now July and time for a new theme for Read It 2011. This chilly month we will be reading crime and mystery books, both fiction and non fiction – #whodoneit

Crime reading, whether fiction or non-fiction are a huge part of most library collections.

With fiction sub genres like detective (men or women in charge), legal, historical, psychological, forensic, cosy, gourmet, comical, spy and suspense, there is a never ending supply of reading material. Blue Mountains Libraries have separate Crime/Suspense shelves so it’s easy to find a crime story that will suit you.

There’s no shortage of true crime to read either. Seedy, cruel, heartbreaking, lawbreaking and fascinating, and often all at once. Look about in the Library shelves at 364.994 for Australian true crime.

You can join us and tweet about what you are reading in July using the Twitter hashtag #whodoneit. You can also use this tag on other social media sites such as flickr or when you post about your reading on your blog.

You might also want to add tags for each month’s reading to Trove or LibraryThing so that other people can see what you are reading.

We hope you will join us in our suspenseful reading, as you share your own crime and mystery reads during #whodoneit.
