Century Club Mystery Reading Challenge

Welcome to Mystillery Manor
Here's to crime!
Welcome to the Century Club Mystery Reading Challenge at Mystillery Manor, the pièce de résistance of mystery reading challenges! This is an ongoing (not an annual) reading challenge. Your goal is to gain a place at the table of our refined, elegant Mystillery Century Club; where the conversation, like the champagne; is sparkling. You do this by reading ten - yes, only ten - mystery stories - selecting one from each of the ten previous decades (1920's, 1930's, and so on through the 2010's); and adding each one to your distinguished pedigree.

Upon your first submission, you join the grasping Social Climbers. Upon your tenth - and final - submission you become an entitled Centurion, and gain a seat at our table (Waiter! Another glass!). Read the General Information page then submit your decade to the Membership Secretary!

updated We welcome Beth M of North Carolina to the table as member #15!
May we suggest you browse the pedigrees below, if you are looking for appropriate mysteries to enjoy. Just click the pedigree icon against each name.
