I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I'm struggling a bit for two reasons: First, the small essays are a bit like reading book reviews, and it's hard to read a lot of them at once without them all blurring together. Second, if I see a favourite story's essay coming up I don't focus on the current one as closely as I should and I feel like I'm rushing through, so I can see what he says about 'one of mine'.
But neither of those things mean the the book is less than interesting and well written so far, just that patience isn't always my strong suit.
(I am SO mad at myself for not buying Milne's Red House Mystery when I had the chance a few years ago in an out of the way used book shop.)
