Mystery Columnist

I'm not going anyplace, but some of my reviewing may slow down a little until I get an added responsibility under control. Along with another librarian, Ann Theis, I'll be writing the mystery column for Library Journal, beginning with the March 1 issue. That means we're already reading April releases because our deadline for that issue is in mid-January. I just have to find a routine and a rhythm to continue to write and review both here and for LJ.

I'll still be writing reviews here. And, there's my Favorites of 2016 post coming up tomorrow, along with the Treasures in My Closet posts over the weekend. The giveaways will be starting again next week. Sandie Herron will still be writing news and reviews of audios under "Did You Hear?".

I appreciate your patience, and your willingness to talk about what you're reading. I'm hoping to find a routine soon. Thank you for reading with me, even if the reviews have been fewer recently. I'm grateful!

Cool. Getting to read books months before the rest of us peons (just joking) is great, especially with favorite authors.

One more to my "reading now" list: THE MISTLETOE MURDER & Other Stories by P. D. James. Two of the four stories feature Adam Dalgleish.

I was always a fan of Adam Dalgleish. Let me know how the collection is.
