In an article by James Patterson in TIME, he lamented about first time voters reading less than ten minutes a day according to the latest annual survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistic. That floored me. I know it seems many people don’t read more than text messages.

In the mystery field, which is my favorite reading, I also recently finished Kait Carson’s first in the Catherine Swope mysteries, Zoned for Murder. I liked it so much I’m going to order her second in the series. I like her Hayden Kent mysteries, too. Also, beside my bed I’m reading The Case Book of Emily Lawrence by K.B. Inglee. It’s a collection of short stories, and rather than read them all at once, I’m reading several a week so I can enjoy them longer. Just this week I finished an Anne Tyler book, A Spool of Blue Thread, which is not a mystery, but I found it a good read. I’m reading a chapter at a time of Dreams of Justice; Mysteries as Social Documents by Dick Adler. For my next two book clubs coming up next week, I’m reading Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, by Jenny Lawson. So far I’m not too enthused with it. The other one is The Secret to Hummingbird Cake, by Celeste Fletcher McHale. I think I might like this a little more, but the book I really want to be reading is Elizabeth George’s third in her YA series – The Edge of the Shadows. I just recently got it through The Mystery Book Club.

P.S. I didn’t have room in this blog to put in pictures of all my bookcases in every room except
