Thank You!

I started writing this blog on 1 April 2009, then under the name The Game is Afoot, in blogger and mainly in Spanish. Since then many things have happened that are almost impossible to summarise. However, I would like to take advantage of this anniversary to thank those who read it, either regularly or sporadically, for their support. I hope to continue writing A Crime is Afoot for many more years, and I trust that my future book notes will add something to a mere enumeration or compilation of my readings.

All best
