  1. I love this series! I want to start from the beginning and read them all again.

  2. This is one of my all-time favorite mystery series.

    Here's my Friday 56 post:

  3. The last Linky I posted did the same. I think they need some kind of spam filter or moderation option....
    Congrats on figuring out Edelweiss! I can't seem to get a handle on it and I never get approved there. Which is weird since I've never had a problem on NG.

  4. I've read some of Sue Grafton's books - but not this one. I'd like to.

  5. An ad for chainsaws. That cracked me up! Great dialogue.

  6. Oh great choice! I've actually featured her books on my blog at one point! I had the idea to read them all A- Z lol Are you doing that? :)

    1. I will definitely be reading them in order but not right away. I bought this one the day media learned of her passing. I felt it a great tribute to start the series.

  7. I love Sue Grafton's series. I need to finish off the series still (next is U). It's one of my favorite mystery series. Thank you for hosting!

  8. I read A Is For Alibi many years ago. Sue Grafton was a great writer. It's too bad she didn't finish the series before her death.

    I prefer to use Netgalley.

  9. I need to finish the series--I should probably re-start it, it's been so long.

    1. Welcome to the 56! I hope to see you regularly!

  11. I got an account at Edelweiss but don't recall requesting anything. I didn't get on with the interface. I much prefer NetGalley's simpler approach.

  12. I've never read this series and it's so famous! Thanks for playing along on Book Beginnings!

    Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  13. Happy anniversary! Sorry the international guys out of a giveaway)))

  14. Love Sue Grafton's series. Good intros.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
