How to:

  1. Advance signup is no longer needed.
  2. Obtain a set of four Beachcomber beach bags. Here are some options:

    • Largest print! Each beach bag is a separate web page.

    • Printer friendly! Here are all four on one sheet of paper, easy to print, fold up, and tuck in your book:

    • Mobile device friendly! Here are individual beach bags as .jpg images:

    • Plain text! Easy to copy/paste onto a blog tracking page.

    • Refer to the beach bags as you read. Mark the items on the beach bags as you find them in your books.

    • For Detectives, find a letter which occurs in the detective's name.
      • Titles do not count. For example, "Inspector Closeau" would count for A, but not for T.
      • You can use anyone who has the detective role in the story, it need not be an 'official' detective.
      • You may find more than one detective per book, but use each one only once, however...
      • You can reuse a detective by reading additional books - for example, if you read two Nero Wolfe books, you can use Nero Wolfe for both F and O.

    • For Victims, find a letter which occurs in the victim's name. Victims must be dead. You may find more than one per book, but use each one only once.

    • WILD CARDS! You are allowed four WILD CARDS total. These are freebies to replace those last hard-to-find items. Just cross out that item and write in "Wild Card". You can use them on any beach bag, even all four on one beach bag if that is needed.

    • Submit the Beachcomber Form as you fill each beach bag. This is on the honor system, you need not list nor document your books, nor submit the beach bags themselves.

    • You will get a cabana on the beach upon filling your first beach bag.
