and Children's Books -

  • God Made Me by Helen Haidle (Illustrated by Rick Incrocci)
Currently Reading:

I decided the Lucy Stone cozy mystery series is perfect for the Fall / Winter Mystery Reading Challenge. I've started with the first in the series:

Mistletoe Murder by Leslie Meier

1 disc (of 7) left of this:

the ride of our lives: Roadside Lessons of an American Family by Mike Leonard (Read by Marc Cashman)

I planned to get futher with this, but I misplaced it for a while. I'll be trying to read more of it this week (again)...

Bear-ology: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales & Trivia by Sylvia Dolson

and ugh (for a class - big exam today)...

Essentials of Systems Analysis and Design (4th Edition) by Joseph S. Valacich, Joey F. George, & Jeffrey A. Hoffer

Upcoming books:
  • Tippy Toe Murder by Leslie Meier
  • Tick or Treat Murder by Leslie Meier
  • Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich
I had several library books go overdue this week. I need to be better about reading what I check out:
  • boys that bite by Mari Mancusi (This is still overdue, I couldn't renew it I'm reading it this week or returning it unread.)
  • Luck Be a Lady, Don't Die by Robert J. Randisi
  • The Fat Boy Murders by David A. Kaufelt
  • Secrets by F.M. McPherson
  • Eragon by Christopher Paolini
  • Pirate Curse by Kai Meyer
  • The Water Mirror by Kai Meyer


  1. You have quite list and the cozy mystery sounds delightfully fun. Happy reading and my Monday is here:

  2. I want to read that book by Molly Harper! I loved the first one!

    Happy reading :D

  3. That's an impressive list! I have that problem with library books too -- I check out a bunch and then I run out of time to read them. I think it's the library's fault though, somehow, I'm sure it is :-)

  4. Best of luck on your Fall/Winter Mystery Reading Challenge!

  5. You've got a long list there! I love Stephanie Plum novels, hope you like 15. I also enjoy cozy mysteries, so thanks for pointing me to this author. Have you read any by Donna Andrews?

  6. This is an eclectic list, and it looks like you've been doing some fun reading. I love the title Nice Girls Don't Date Dead Men. :-)

  7. Quite a list! Have fun reading!!!!

  8. Jennifer - I haven't gotten very far with it, but it's interesting so far. I like the heroine.

    Ruth - I want to read the 3rd! I really liked the first 2. =)

    Marie - That's a great concept. That's what I'm going to say the next time I have had books for 6 weeks and still haven't read them. ;P

    J. Kaye - Thanks!

    Sharon - I've read Donna Andrews's first, really enjoyed it, and decided I was going to wait until I had most, if not all of the series b4 I read any by her again. So I won't have any (more) long waits. (And I'll re-read the 1st while I'm at it.)

    Stephanie - I haven't had any disappointments recently (unless you count the school books). A lucky streak.

    hmsgofita - Thanks!
