  1. I wanted to officially welcome you to the challenge. The more the merrier! :)

  2. This looks like a great list. I'm a techno-thriller addict, so doing this challenge will be a real stretch for me checking out all the other genres. I did start reading a hard-boiled thriller this week, Threshold by Bonnie Kozek. It's a great piece of dark fiction and so different from what I usually read that I'm really enjoying it.
