Something new for me! I picked this up from a new DW friend, [personal profile] likeadeuce. I am hoping to become more motivated to read more this year. I have more books than I can count and they just keep publishing them!

Here goes:

What are you currently reading?

I am reading a cozy mystery for the reading group I belong to at FB: Cozy Mystery Once a Month Book Club. We chat and the author joins us sometimes. I find the ones without the author are more fun because we are more honest about the book. But I make new friends and that's why I decided to do it anyway.

The book is Eclair and Present Dander by Laura Bradford. It's about a young woman who sells baked goods from an old ambulance that she inherited and also tries to solve the murder of her elderly neighbor. It's fluff so far but that's why they call them cozies.

What did you recently finish reading?

Another cozy: Rest ye Murdered Gentlemen by Vicky Delany. It was another of the book club reads. It was fluff as well. The story of a murder in a town called Rudolf that sells itself THE Christmas town and a young woman who sells - wait for it - Christmas decorations is hip deep in snow and murder solving.

They are fun and light reading but sometimes... one needs a real book which brings me to my next choice.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I got a new book today, fresh off the presses from Amazon. Death at the Little Big Horn: A New Look at Custer - His Tactics and the Tragic Decisions Made at the Last Stand by Phillip Thomas Tucker, PhD. is my next book. I love Western history and love the period of Western Expansion. Custer is a favorite. I am not sure I can even explain why but I will try sometime. Suffice it to say that I read as many books about this subject as I can. We even drove 273 miles there and 273 back in one day to visit there when we visited a friend in South Dakota. This book supposedly has some new ideas... we shall see. I am thinking of reading it alongside the mystery...

That's the first Wednesdayt Reading report with [personal profile] alexcat Hope you enjoyed it and will tune again next Wednesday for another chapter!
