Forgotten Books: Mystery Book Group Winter 2012

The Mystery Readers International, NorCal Mystery Book Group has been meeting weekly on Tuesday nights in Berkeley (CA) for over 30 years. Since we've read so many books during that time--at least a book a week--this session we'll be revisiting some books and authors we've come across in the past. So this session, we'll be reading "Forgotten Books". Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. Please comment if you plan to attend...or  comment if you'd like to 'read and discuss' along with us.

I love the idea of resuscitating lost art. Most of these I don't know: did they ever go out of print?

Janet Rudolph said...

Most are out of print but available on Amazon, ABE or Alibris.

I can claim to have read only three of those, but you say they're out of print? I wonder if that button on Amazon [tell the publisher you'd like this available on Kindle] really works?

I think I've read three of those. I wonder if the button on Amazon [Let the publisher know you'd like this available on Kindle] works?

Maddy, some have been reissued, and you can find them on Amazon--and, of course, ABE and Alibris..
