Bookish Detectives, Sleuths, and Private Eyes, Oh My!






“Life is choice. All day, everyday. Who we talk to, where we sit, what we say, how we say it. And our lives become defined by our choices. It’s as simple and as complex as that. And as powerful. So when I’m observing, that’s what I’m watching for. The choices people make.”  ― Louise Penny, Still Life

It's time to get out your magnifying glasses and prepare to look for clues as we follow in the footsteps of  detectives, sleuths, and private eyes.  Our spelling challenge this year is all about the characters and how they perceive the world and solve the riddles and mysteries of the crooked and crafty. 

There are a variety of ways to complete this challenge with plenty of rabbit trails. Read a book with one or more of the following (but not limited too) and have fun exploring a variety of places and topics:  


  • One book per letter in the character's first or last name.
  • One book per letter in the author's first or last name.
  • If you're feeling really ambitious, one book per letter in the character's first and last name.
  • Follow in a character's footsteps and read a book set in the country or time period of the story.
  • Follow in the author's footsteps and read a book set in their place or time of birth.
  • Read a book with the first or last name of the character or author in the title
  • Read the first book in the series.

  2. Y'all are book sirens. I can feel my resolve to stop signing up for even more challenges withering away. I love all the options you give for your challenges. They always make me think! :)
