So last night I found myself in a bit of a muddle. My "To Be Read Pile" was depleted. I order all my books from The Book Depository and for some reason the series I have been reading and pre ordering did not have any releases this month that I ordered. It was 7:30 at night and I was thrilled to find my public library was open until 9pm.
I told my husband my problem, put the youngest to bed and left the boys with their Dad as I made my way to the library where I stood in front of the spiral racks of cozies at my library, faced with a muddle. Not having a ton of time to choose, I used my "Choose Books By Their Cover" method, grabbed 8 I thought looked interesting, checked them out and headed home.
I lay them out as you see above and tried to pick the one I wanted to read, before resorting to "Enie meni mini mo" I posted the photo on Facebook to get some opinions, a friend suggested Death of a Kitchen Diva. I then turned each over and read the back to see if any jumped out at me right away and I grabbed Death of a Kitchen Diva, read the back and realized I had read this one about a year ago and place in in a different pile.
Hooked On Murder by Betty Hechtman a try... When I choose first in series I always get a bit nervous. It's an odd feeling I get almost feels like guilt~ Silly I know. I feel sometimes like I am so committed to the series that I love and do I have room in my life for another one? I had to do some self talk, "just read the first few pages and if you don't like it you can switch to another one..." Well 8 pages in I am "hooked" already and glad I took the chance.
As with all my posts I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
