The last book I read was a politician's autobiography. Shudder. Talk about a horrible reading experience. Have you ever read a book and got angry about almost everything that the author wrote? I should've put it down after the first page, but I needed to know about this woman since she says that she talks for the real Americans. I'm a real American but nothing she wrote represented my point of view. Bleah!
I finished that book about five months ago. I started three books since then. Put each one down after a few pages in. I just could not focus.
Five months is a long time for me to go without reading a book. But, that's about to change. To motivate me back to the book path, I signed up today to complete the Cozy Mystery Challenge hosted by Not Enough Books. The challenge started back in April, but readers can sign up for the challenge until September 1.
I like reading a good cozy mystery. I even wrote three-quarters of one years ago. Just couldn't figure how to end it. Who knows, maybe after finishing this challenge, I might feel like working on my novel again. Don't I already sound confident that I'll be rejoicing my accomplishment in two months?
Don't know what a cozy mystery is? Here's Not Enough Books definition: "...a cozy mystery is a mystery that doesn't normally have any rough language, sex scenes, or gruesome details about the killing, and the main character is normally an amateur detective."
