Book list for February 2014

Last Bus to Woodstock: An Inspector Morse Mystery. Colin Dexter.

Casey gave me a couple of Inspector Morse books for Christmas and I just finished the first one.  I love middle-aged, alcoholic loners with unorthodox investigative practices.

(See: 2012's book list. I read every English translation of the Kurt Wallander novels, and a collection of short stories.)

Currently reading:
The Mystery of the Third Mile. Colin Dexter.
The Scarlet Thread. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
A Cold Dish. Craig Johnson.

So that's another Inspector Morse story, a Sherlock Holmes story, and a Walt Longmire story, respectively.  Cody and I got sucked into Longmire after I won the first season of the TV show on DVD in my family's dirty Santa exchange.  Levi figured at least one of us would enjoy it, and he was very right.

I don't know if I'm going through a mystery phase, or if this is just what I've enjoyed most of my life and I took a break for college and then trying to read everything I should have read in college.  I love mysteries.  Or maybe I just love detectives.  Either way, I'm happy with my reading selections this month.
