Book Blogger Hop

Jennifer at Crazy for Books hosts a Book Blogger Hop every Friday which usually involves answering a book related question and visiting other blogs that have participated in the Hop. It's a fine way to discover new blogs and bloggers.

Today however it's not so much a question as highlighting something that you loved. Here's what she writes:


“It’s time to spread some love beyond the borders of the Book Blogger Hop! This week, we aren’t answering a question. We are spotlighting our fellow bloggers. Find your favorite(s) author interview(s), guest post(s), book review(s), or bookish article(s) that ANOTHER BOOK BLOGGER featured on their site recently and tell us why you love it/them! As an additional challenge, find your favorite one of EACH of the categories above and spotlight all 4 (interview, guest post, review, article).”

 Well, there are many reviews and book related reflections that I've enjoyed but am highlighting one that I just read. Patrick at At the Scene of the Crime discusses 10 rules of detection laid down by Father Roland Knox and argues (with suitable illustrations) about both their utility and futility. It's a Must Read article for all those who love reading about Crime and Detection.

Here's something to whet your appetite. Patrick is discussing the 6th Rule:
VI. No accident must ever help the detective, nor must he ever have an unaccountable intuition which proves to be right.
This is debatable. Sometimes, the detective hears a scrap of conversation from two strangers and exclaims “What a fool I’ve been! Of course!!! Johnny Depp plays Captain Jack Sparrow in four movies! That’s the key to the whole affair!”

    I don't read many mysteries, but I look forward to your reviews to get into them!
