As promised…text for Tuesday’s post!

On Tuesday I posted a few pictures from spending the day at Mysterious Galaxy’s 20th birthday celebration. As promised, here’s the text to go with the photos. 😉

I was fortunate enough to attend Avery Aames (Daryl Wood Gerber) and Rochelle Staab’s author presentation before their book signing (they were both so gracious). I had read A Long Quiche Goodbye a while back and was looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

The part I enjoyed the best was listening to them talk about how their books take shape and how readers have become so invested. I particularly enjoyed Avery’s story about having encountered numerous folks from Wisconsin wanting to know why The Cheese Shop Mysteries are set in Ohio.

I am looking forward to reading the Mind for Murder books. I picked up a copy of Who Do, Voodoo at the signing–I’m the kind of reader who likes to start with the first book in the series whenever possible.

I was patient and waited to pick up Dead, White, and Blue from Mysterious Galaxy on Saturday instead of running out on Tuesday. I also bought two other “firsts”: Liz Lippeman’s Beef Stolen-Off and Victoria Hamilton’s A Deadly Grind. I’m going to have to upgrade my to-read bedside basket to a to-read bedside steamer trunk soon!

The rest of my weekend haul included all The Cheese Shop Mysteries and Lucy Burdette’s Topped Chef. I had loaned my copy of A Long Quiche Goodbye to a friend so I decided to just buy another copy.

Trivia Time: As you know, I am a big Murder, She Wrote fan so you can imagine how tickled I was to find that Avery Aames (as Daryl Lynn Wood) was on the “Simon Says, Color Me Dead”).

I am two-thirds through my (re)reading of A Long Quiche Goodbye and Tuesday’s post will be my review along with a new section of the blog!

In honor of Throwback Thursday, what was your first book?

Have a good weekend, everyone! See you Tuesday!

See you in a few days!

P.S. I decided to reread Avery Aamess’ A Long Quiche Goodbye since it’s been a little while. So far, the book is as fun as I remember. I may use my review to introduce a new blog section I’ve been noodling with for a while. Oh, my copy The Bletchley Circle is in the mail!
