Medical Examiner's Reading Challenge 2022

 



Medical Examiner's Challenge
Hosted By: Rick Mills @ Mistillery
Dates: Dec. 25, 2021 - Dec. 31 2022

Summary of Rules/Details:

Read a murder mystery. Note the victim(s) and cause(s) of death.  Report them on a "Death Certificate".  You get a "Toe Tag" for each victim. The victim must have name and cause of death to count. 

WARNING ~ SPOILER ALERT:  Since I don't like knowing who will die before I finish reading a book, I have considered others like me, and I have not included the victim names.  However, these could still be considered spoiler alerts, so READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

My Goal: 522 Tags
Progress: 528/522  GOAL MET 8/4
