This is the bookshelf formerly known as petsnpeople

I like to read series. Right now I am currently reading these series as I get the books:

Charlotte and Thomas Pitt mysteries by Anne Perry
Sano Ichiro mysteries by Laura Joh Rowland
Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton medical thrillers by Robin Cook
Ruso and Tilla murder mystery series by Ruth Downie
Ruth Galloway mysteries by Elly Griffiths
Green Rider by Kristen Britain
Flavia Albia by Lindsey Davis
The Greek Village by Sara Alexi

I also enjoy reading Star Trek (any series) and Harlequin Intrigue books, but have never tried to read them in order of publication or keep up with them as published. I enjoy cozy mysteries, medical thrillers, fantasy and books I can share with my granddaughters. And, weather and health permitting, I weekly put 7 or so books in our Downtown Book Exchange - two converted phone booths located on our Courthouse Square.

I have completed these series:

Amelia Peabody by Elizabeth Peters
Rei Shimura by Sujata Massey
Marcus Didius Falco by Lindsey Davis
SPQR by John Maddox Roberts (waiting for the next release)
Father Ananda by Nick Wilgus
Wizard of Yurt by C. Dale Brittain
Pennsylvania Dutch Inn Mysteries (with recipes) by Tamar Myers
The Avalon series by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Diana Paxton
The Rowan books by Anne McCaffrey
. . . and others

The most amazing books I've read in the past few years are (1) Resistance by Anita Shreve, (2) Midwives by Chris Bohjalian, (3) From Here You Can't See Paris by Michael Sanders, (4) The Red Tent by Anita Diamant and (5) Ahab's Wife by Sena Jeter Naslund.

Bookcrossers have introduced me to new authors and series. I have particularly enjoyed "The Cat Who" series and Sharon Shinn's "Samaria" books.

As I sometimes do, I am going to list my books read.
