I got hooked on mysteries with Agatha Christie and Dick Francis who are undoubtedly two of the best ever.  Lately I've been reading lots of cozies and while there are some excellent writers in that genre, I've been cooling on them a bit lately.  I've decided to go back to the roots of my mystery love and work my way through the winners of the major mystery awards.  To me that is the Edgars, the Anthonys, the Agathas and the Golden Daggers.  I've started a thread about it here.  I realize that while I have read a number of them, there are so many that I haven't read and I'm really excited to read some classic authors and some that are new to me. This will take a while but it should be really fun!
