On My Bookshelf – November 23, 2020

It’s always a good week when there are lots of books to read and to enjoy! You might notice a trend. Fair warning, I like mysteries. I actually LOVE a good mystery. So I read a lot of them. But there’s at least one non-fiction book in the midst of these mysteries. One must keep sharp, after all…

Here’s what’s on the “To Read” shelf this week:

Murder’s No Votive Confidence

by Christin Brecher

I haven’t read this author before, but I like the cozy mysteries that teach, and I’ve always been interested in candlemaking.

No Graves As Yet

by Anne Perry

Book 1 in a WWI mystery series featuring a Chaplain as a main character.

I’ve enjoyed other Anne Perry series, so I’m hopeful this one is a good one.

Man’s Search for Meaning

by Viktor Frankl

This is the only non-fiction book I’m reading this week. It’s considered a classic in psychology and the art of spiritual survival. I’m surprised I haven’t read it yet. Here goes.

I’m also reading a few other books that are “too old” for Kindle, so I am going to post a couple of links here in case you are curious. These are also mysteries.


by Ira Levin

Deathtrap is a play that was referenced in Eight Perfect Murders. I had to get a copy after my interest was piqued!

Copy Kat

by Karen Kijewski

Copy Kat is #4 in a enjoyable older mystery series, with the main character a female private eye from Sacramento, California. I picked the series up as it was set in my hometown and I was curious. If you like Kinsey Malone in Sue Grafton‘s books, you ought to enjoy this series as well.

Well, that’s my ambitious reading list for the week!

I’ll let you know what I thought of these books as I get through them. In the meantime, if you have a recommendation, or if you try any of these, do let me know what you think. I’m always on the lookout for a good read.

Oh, and I’m on Goodreads too.


President Roosevelt said it

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

— President Theodore Roosevelt
