I’m excited you are rejoining me, Emma, in our new year! I have kept aside “The Tightrope Walker” as a prize, should you win the final 2014 riddle (watch for it around January 9), or next year’s clues. 🙂 There is room for Dorothy Gilman to continue on your list; all of her wonderful standalone stories and hard-to-obtain autobiography, set in Canada. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2015/
thanks for encouraging me to read more DG. As for the riddle, the whole game seems complicated to me, I never really understood how it worked, so I never took part I think, or I may have tried once.
You had only to ask! I post a clue that is more general. If you have ideas about whom it might be, just e-mail me your guesses. As many times as they occur to you. If someone gets it on the first clue, I do a draw from among those people (or sole person, which is why guesses are e-mailed).
The next clue is easier, a little more obvious. Again, e-mail as many guesses as you like. There is nothing to lose. With my groups so small; I will make the last clue very obvious, or just do a draw among everyone who tried! 🙂
thanks, I will try!
You did try and you won! I can’t wait to have your e-mail. As I say in the revelation post, I bet you’ll choose “The Tightrope Walker” as your prize but we’ll see! Congratulations again.
OMG, thanks to your reply here, I totally missed Gilman’s book, and was trying to understand what you were referring to, yes of course I definitely want this one!!! merci

Emma, your unique voice was a pleasure in MY KIND OF MYSTERY of 2015. You finished a very nice list of mysteries! Thank you for taking the time to add them to our review page. I wish you a wonderfully blessed year and would certainly love to have you in 2016, which starts tomorrow. I am drawing for the 2015 year-end winners today! Sincerely, Carolyn. https://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-challenges-2016/
it was nice, but it’s easier for me to go from Jan 1st to Dec 31, like most of other reading challenges
What’s stopping you? Many of our members do. I simply give until January 31 so no one is busy finishing challenges at Christmas. 🙂 I would be happy to have you again, Emma. I’d love to hear if you planted the Marigolds you won several months ago and the unique Dorothy Gilman book. 🙂
I did plant the marigolds back in April: I do that every year, all along our vegetable garden, perfect to avoid bugs or critters without putting any chemicals. So thank you, and that gave me the idea to keep the seeds for next year, so I have all my supplies for next veggie season.
I LOVED Dorothy’s book, it’s one of the books I read in 2015 that are still waiting to be reviewed, I’ll be talking about that issue in my Jan recap, live tomorrow.
And I will post the review one day!
I’m all set for all my challenges, I set everything up at the end of December. So will see next year. I like being able to see who are the other participants who joined and visit their blogs.
