Recent Reading Obession

I LOVE having a library card!! But just like my queue on Ravelry, my reading queue is daunting and I don’t know where to start. A girlfriend found me standing helplessly staring at the mystery stacks in the library and gently helped me away from the edge of the abyss. She a put a Janet Evanovich novel in my hands and pointed me to towards the checkout desk.

I had heard of Stephanie Plum series before so I wasn’t unfamiliar. But I’m glad I picked up the series. The books are seriously addicting to a murder mystery buff like myself. So far I have read:

  • One for the Money
  • Two for the Dough
  • Three to Get Deadly

The author has a great sense of humor. The characters are reasonably well developed and I find that I like that they are all a bit flawed. Most of all the books let me loose myself in them. That’s all I ask of a book, take me away to an imaginary world for a few minutes and forget my real world stress and problems. I like my books with a little mystery, lots of humor, nothing gross, nothing scary, and not so easy that I can pick the killer out on page 40. I’m a fluffy chic murder mystery kind of girl, lol.

For me this series is a winner and I can’t wait to keep reading. Novels four and five are waiting for me to pick up at the library as we speak.

What kind of books do you like to read? Anything I should read?

Literary Adventure

I got an unexpected call from a friend today and she asked if I was up for a literary adventure.

The local public library had their annual “friends of the library” book sale this weekend. Today was the closing day and for $5 you could fill a brown paper bag with as many books would fit! I LOVE BOOKS! Even though the tables were pretty picked through I scored mysteries, history, cook books, and some children’s books for my sister’s first grade classroom!!

Here is the haul!


I plan on donating most of these to my hometown library when I am done reading. I like to think of it as good book karma 🙂

Ps…this trip was much needed therapy after a terrible knitting mishap yesterday. I hope to have the strength to blog about it sometime this week, sigh.

Now I need to get to the homemade Beef n Noodles waiting for me on the stove…..
