I love mysteries. I was checking the site yesterday. It's great, with lots of books to look for. Thanks for sharing.

I'm reading "Last known address" by Theresa Schwegel. Page 60 and I'm not "buying" the story. I don't think I'll wait until page 300 for the book to be interesting, like "A Person of Interest".

The magazine Romantic Times Book Review also lists upcoming books in different genres (they break out romance into specialized genres, like historicals, contemporaries, chick-lit, inspirationals, mainstream, erotica, category romances - i.e., Silhouette and Harlequin, and list SF, fantasy, paranormals, suspense, as well). They print short reviews, and feature lists of upcoming books in series, as well as books that will be published a couple of months down the line.
Kathy, thanks loads for that reference! I went there and discovered ALL Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books! I'm making a list of the ones we are missing and will try to find them at various used book outlets. Wish someone would republish them!

Glad to be of assistance.

What type of mysteries do you prefer?

I'm glad I was able to help.

I generally order used books online (the only used bookstore we had here closed when the owner died several years ago, and no one took it over) -- my first choice is barnesandnoble.com, because if I go through Mr. Rebates first, I get a 3% rebate to my PayPal account (Amazon doesn't give rebates).

Just finished The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber. Now I'm reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies--has anyone else read this?

I have read a lot of reviews of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and they are all extremely favorable. I am not a huge Jane Austin fan, so I have not dove in yet......

Not a Jane Austen fan either....so I do not know how comparable/compatible this book is to the original. It is a fairly interesting read.

A book about singer/songwriters by Bob Sarlin, who uses the term "songpoet" to describe his subjects. Yet feels that only rockers can classify as "songpoets". Leonard Cohen? You're out of luck. You don't "rock".
