Hey if a criminal was really clever, and DID get the idea from a book, they'd #1 get away with it and then #2 never tell you. So we truly do not know if it happens; whether the actual "cause" is reading them or not, that's another topic entirely. Promoting literature and literacy of ANY kind most likely doesn't promote crime! If anything, will just give criminals better spelling. ha ha ha

heck i wouldn't be able to stand all these goody tooshoo books when everyone has a perfect life and nothing goes on thats exciting. I need excitement and sometimes mysteries and crimes help your education sometimes. They help you think and use your imagination and lately it seems that's what people want us to do. If people want to go out there and use the author's ideas, if they read through the book to the end, they know the consequences of their actions. If they are going to take away crime and mystery books cause they promote violence, they haven't seen what has been going on tv then.

Good question if mysteries cuase people to be criminals, I wonder what books Dick Cheney and George W. Bush have read.
