Crime Watch makes a 50 Best Blogs for Crime & Mystery Book Lovers list

Last week I found out, thanks to some other crime fiction bloggers, that Crime Watch had been named on a list of the 50 Best Blogs for Crime & Mystery Book Lovers, worldwide.

Court Reporter, a website containing comprehensive information on educational requirements and opportunities, job options and prospects, and relevant topics in relation to the career of court reporting in the USA, decided to select and list, in its blog that is part of its website, blogs that can provide some education for keen crime and mystery fans.

As Court Reporter said, "If you love your books to have a sinister plot, shady butler or classic whodunit twists and turns, then you won’t want to miss this list of novel blogs to round out your crime and mystery education. You’ll find posts from well-known authors, real-life crime reporters, fans like yourself and a plethora of suggestions on what you should read next, so get a clue and start reading."

Given that right from the start, my intention for this blog was always to provide something informative for readers, adding something new or extra to the crime fiction coverage already out there, and perhaps filling some previously uncovered gaps, I must admit to being a little chuffed to have Crime Watch acknowledged as an informative blog for crime and mystery lovers. Many of the other blogs listed are amongst my favourites for keeping up to date with happenings in the world of crime and mystery fiction, and are well worth visiting too. You can read the full list (which includes links), here.
