Top Mysteries and Thrillers

The online book vendor, Amazon, has created a list of "100 Mysteries and Thrillers to Read in a Lifetime."

A list of favorite mysteries and thrillers can also be found at GoodReads. The list is compiled on the basis of readers' votes, and is not compiled with sales in mind, so, I'm going to be highlighting the titles on the GoodReads list today. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson is #1, which is not surprising when you consider we have the title in multiple formats--F LAR, 3M ebook, AB/CD LAR, and two versions of the DVD GIR!

I believe we have most of the 100 titles in our collection, even the older, less-read ones like Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier [F DUM] #5, The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins [F COL] #38, and The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin [F LEV] #89.

Although it is not specifically a list of mysteries and thrillers, the American Film Institute has created "AFI's 100 YEARS...100 THRILLS," a list they describe as "the 100 most thrilling American films of all time." If you get tired of spending your lifetime reading, there's plenty on the list to watch! We have many of the films in our collection, so you're sure to find something thrilling when you're in the mood.
