Things are going to be fun for the next few months! I have signed up for a long list of amazing blogathons. In fact, I have signed up for so many that I decided I needed to write a post to keep everything straight in my own head. Ready? Let’s go!
I am hosting:
It’s going to be a celebration of classic detectives in movies and television. I will be covering the 1922 version of Sherlock Holmes starring John Barrymore and (gulp!) Carol Dempster. You can read the complete roster here.
