I created a new list to vote on our next cozy mystery - here.  I put one on that has six copies in the system, and I already have one.  Add your choices, just be sure that there are enough copies in the system for everyone to order if it is chosen.

I added two.  There are plenty of copies in the system of both.  I added Carrot Cake Murders by Joanna Fluke and Catering to Nobody by Diane Mott Davidson.  I've had Carrot Cake Murders for a while and this would give me a good reason to read it!  I like the idea of starting Diane Mott Davidson's books from the beginning.  I love Goldy and the whole series.  I am surprised how many books there are in the system of hers.

You ladies are on top of things here. :)  I went to library earlier this week & was shown a section of books that they are giving away.  She said to take as many as I wanted, so I filled my library bag with a bunch.

Anyway, 2 out of the 3 listed for voting I brought home with me. lol!! 

Guess I'm gonna go vote now.   cool

I added 2, one is a series I have been told was good, and i would like to start it.  The other book one has only 3 copies, but it was a short book, I read it and it was funny. I would like to read book 2, Which of course i can do at my leisure.  (hahahahahha Leisure)

Add your books and vote on the ones you would be willing to read.  Deb, when do you want to pick a winner for discussion?  We don't have one for the end of August, so do you want to do this one beginning Aug 15th?  Or because we got a late start, do you want to continue voting and discuss in mid-September?  Cozys are fast reads, so I am game for either, we just need to plan enough time for getting them ordered.

I'm new to this genre, would Nero Wolfe be considered a cozy?

If you mean the Nero Wolfe series by Rex Stout, I would say yes it's a cozy series.

I found him listed here: (under cozy mysteries)

I have been looking for other books to add to the voting list, but it is hard to find cozys with copies in the system!  Popular genre!!

OK, we now have 15 books on the voting list.  Vote for all you would be willing to read.  I did a lot of searching but found some with more than enough copies in the system.  Have fun!!  I searched mainly for books with recipes in them.

 

ETA - Make that 17

Be sure you scroll all the way to the bottom, there is a Book 1 of a series listed last (at least for now).

I'm a little burned out on nice at the moment. I've got some grittier fare lined up for the next few books I read.

Barb, you have lots of time, we won't begin discussion of this one until mid-September.  Plenty of time to read gritty before the next one.
