I recently wrote an entry about not reading through all of the books in my favorite authors’ Cozy mystery book series… even though I have all of those books waiting in my TBR (To Be Read) bookshelf. Years ago, when I discovered an author who I really liked, I would read right through his/her series.
The reason I wrote that entry is because my daughter asked me if I had finished all of Camille Minichino‘s books. I don’t think that I have written about the fact that my daughter is not a Cozy Mystery book enthusiast. She was an Aerospace Engineering student (until her graduation this past May) and most of her reading was very technical. Even her reading for enjoyment was scientific… books about Physics, Astronomy, Probability, etc. >>> Not at all Cozy in nature!
When I first started reading Minichino’s Periodic Table series, I told my daughter that I thought she might enjoy reading her… and to make a long story (just!) a little shorter: She did! My daughter has been home for the summer and has had a lot of time for reading. She started the series quite a bit later than I did. As I finished the books, I placed them on her nightstand.
Right before I wrote that entry, my daughter asked me where I had placed the next book in the series and was quite surprised that I hadn’t read it yet. She couldn’t believe I read so slowly. That was NOT the case. I was simply “saving” the books. What?!?
She convinced me to live dangerously… throw caution to the wind… bite the bullet…savor the moment… don’t put off until tomorrow… If I keep putting off reading my favorite Cozies, what am I accomplishing?
So, as soon as she finishes the book, I’m going to do just that!
