I had a tag on my old Buddy list for cozy mystery shelves.  These were people who had either bookshelves or WLs with cozies and I would often scan their shelves to order books (or even direct send the random WL book.)  Many of these people post here so rather than send out a pile of Buddy list requests and a ton of individual PMs explain why I'd like to add you to my Buddy list, I'd thought I'd just start this thread. 

If you're ok with the idea of being added to my Buddy list for this reason, could you either post here or send me a request?  This way no one is in the awkward position of turning down an unwanted request and I can still keep an eye on some of your shelves and WLs.

Thanks  :  )

I have quite a few mysteries on my shelf.  I tend to collect several (or all) in a cozy series before reading, then post them in one clump to my buddies who have them wishlisted.

I'm a big reader of cozies (and mysteries in general) and in addition I always make a point to pick up cozies for posting when I shop FOTL sales.   So go ahead and add me to your buddy list!

Mysteries and thrillers are what I read the most but not usually cozies. Also my shelf often does not reflect my reading interests so it may be a mixed bag. Feel free to add me, if you like.

My buddy list is set for auto accept so feel free to add me. I read mostly mysteries, and especially love cozies. I have a mountain of them on my TBR list, many of them wish listed, which I will be posting as I read them.
