From the Booking Desk:

The following list represents many of the books that were mentioned and/or discussed during the “What Are We Reading Panel” at Bouchercon 2013 in Albany.  In no way is this intended to cover all the books discussed, but hopefully it will give those that were not there an idea of the panel’s scope.  These books represent categories as diverse as pre-1995 books, favorite award nominees, overlooked authors, and must reads.  The list is in no particular order.

The participants on this panel were:
