:) yes, that would be great if someone wants to step up to the plate... :D

Well, as requested, if no one else takes Dec, I'll pinch hit (keeping with the baseball metaphors ;)) with #189 One False Step (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories) which is a grand slam mystery. While I'm not on here, I'll reread the book so regardless of whether or not someone else has the December book discussion, I won't be striking out because I'll be reading a cool mystery. ;D

I suppose we can wait a few more days and see if anyone else wants to do it, but I'm thinking you can probably go forward with One False Step, Hardy Sleuth. (But just review the book- don't actually take one false step because I don't want you to fall and hurt yourself. ;) 1 Corinthians 10:12 could be the theme of that book.)

Well, we made it through 2013 for the book reviews! :) 8) Thanks to everyone who participated.

Here's the final list of books covered for 2013.

January- Hardy Sleuth Speed Times Five (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #173)
February- MacGyver The Shattered Helmet (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #52)
March- MacGyver The Hardy Boys Handbook: Seven Stories of Survival (British title: The Hardy Boys Survival Handbook)
April-tomswift2002 Flesh And Blood (Casefiles #39)
May- Dinosaur Dan Danger Unlimited (Casefiles #79)
June- Dinosaur Dan High Stakes (Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys Super Mystery #29)
July- tomswift2002 The Shore Road Mystery (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #6)
August- Dinosaur Dan Hot Wheels (Casefiles #91)
September- tomswift2002 Stress Point (Casefiles #125)
October- MacGyver Trick-or-Trouble (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #175)
November- Hardy Sleuth Hopping Mad (The Hardy Boys: Secret Files #4)
December- Hardy Sleuth One False Step (The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories #189)

So we wound up covering 5 of The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories, 4 of The Hardy Boys Casefiles, 1 of The Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys Super Mystery ('88) books, 1 of The Hardy Boys: Secret Files and even 1 of the spinoff books. (The Hardy Boys Handbook: Seven Stories of Survival). Pretty nice mix!

And a particular thanks to everyone who stepped up to take on an extra month, given that typically we've only been having forum members do two months at most during the year.
So I guess this leads to the question- Do we want to continue this for next year? We're fast coming up on the new year- shall we get the 2014 Book Club thread going? :) 8)
