5. "RE: Whatcha reading?"
In response to message #0
   I'm about to finish the Longmire series by Craig Johnson. That's about 16 novels. But, he's got another one coming out in Sep. He's got a pretty good sense of humor that pops up now and then. Unlike LL, Johnson's books move at a more leisurely pace. Some of LL's books I could read in a day. For me, that's pretty fast. Many of LL's can take longer. But, they all kept my attention and moved right along. I suspect that may be a result of his mastery of the short story. When I finish with Johnson, I may go back and read the Sherlock Holmes stories again. Somewhat sadly, I no longer have my LL collection to dip into. Long story short, I donated all of my LL books to the library at the Springfield Masonic Community in Springfield, Ohio about a year ago. At the same time, I gave them the first half of the Longmire series and will probably give them the second half. Another big difference between Johnson and LL is that I am not likely to read Longmire a second, let alone a third or fourth, time.
