Update: Classic Crime Fiction Readalong with Soho Press

The discussion for the first classic crime fiction read-along is being hosted by and The discussion will officially take place on Thursday (3/22/12), though a few folks are already talking. Hopefully, the folks at Books on the Nightstand will discuss on their weekly podcast (which is amazing, btw).

The first book is The Murders at the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allan Poe. This is believed have been the creation of the crime fiction novel. I enjoyed the book. I haven't read any classic crime stories and I haven't read Poe in the past 10 years. This story can be downloaded for free at

I can't wait to see what is next.
