I've already placed holds on a couple of these at the library.

Hopefully, it won't be long until they arrive, Sandy!

I laughed out loud when Jinx started pushing the book with his paw!

Jane R said...

Looks like I have a lot of titles to add to my book list. Thanks for the update Lesa!

Lesa said...

Oh, Beth. It wasn't an easy book chat to do yesterday. A little too much Jinx!

Lesa said...

You're welcome, Jane. It's a good month for cozy mysteries.

Well, this post just depresses me. It just shows me how far behind I am on some series (12 in the Flower Shop series). There are many of these I've bought the first book and never gotten to or fully intended to buy and start and now I'm multiple books behind.

The exception is Murder with Ganache, which I read and loved this month thanks to an ARC. But now I've got to go back and read the earlier ones in the series.

So many books, so little time, right?

Lesa said...

Totally, Mark. I agree with you, "So many books, so little time." I'm sorry the post depressed you, though. Although, I have to say there are two dozen cozy mysteries in my TBR pile, and that doesn't include everything else I have. I do know though, that I probably have enough books in my house to last me the rest of my life if another one never came out. I just don't want to see that happen, though.

So, good luck with all that catching up, Mark!

Don't worry about it, it's not just your post. I walk into a book store and I start to feel guilty for buying a new book when I am reminded of all the books I have at home I should be reading.

I could go for a year, maybe two, without buying a book and not run out to things to read. And if we got started on the things I'd like to reread....

Lesa said...

I get it, Mark. I even feel guilty when I buy a new book because I don't know when I'm going to get around to reading it.

Thank you, Melissa! I appreciate it.
