Next Read?

This year so far has been a slow year for reading. I have spent much more time over the last several months listening to music than reading. I think that I will make it a goal to read at least two books, that are part of a series that I read, per month for the rest of the year. Maybe one can be new one from a series that I am current with, and the other an older book in a series that I am trying t catch up on!

One of the aspects of reading all the mystery series that I do are the places that I get to roam, if only through the pictures painted in my mind by the words of these great writers.  The major series that I read along with the main character, the main setting for the series and the author of the series are listed on the table below this post. I cover both coast, the central part of the US and five countries!! So which one should I start with… oh no! looks like I left out Kathleen Mallory of New York created by author Carol O’Connell maybe that means I should start, or should I say resume that series. Double oh, no …. Greg Isles’ Penn Cage novels set in Mississippi…. and Greg has a new one out…. and I need to read The Devil’s Punchbowl ... decisions, decisions!! Oh, well let’s go for a run and think about it!!
