You may notice that there’s an addition to the title bar on this blog.  It’s called Reader’s Recommendations, and it was my friend Kate’s idea.

She suggested that there should be a place for readers to recommend books and authors they like, in hopes that I would blog about them.  I thought it was a great idea, so with the help of Andy Woznica at flyte new media (, Reader’s Recommendations is debuting this week.

If you have a suggestion about a favorite book or author, just complete the form under Reader’s Recommendations.  When you click the Submit button at the bottom of the form, it will come directly to my gmail address and will not appear on the blog.  That’s to insure your privacy.  I will acknowledge every recommendation so that you’ll know I received it.

I will make every effort to read all recommendations, although I can’t promise to blog about every one.  Thus far, in my more than one hundred and fifty posts, I have not reviewed two books by the same author.  My thinking is to broaden my own horizons in the mystery genre as well as, hopefully, yours.  So if you suggest a book by an author about whom I’ve already written, I may decide to postpone blogging about that second book.  However, that doesn’t mean I won’t eventually get to it, although books by authors I’ve not written about will get first preference.

That being said, I very much wish to hear from you about your favorite authors and books.  As many books as I read each week, I know there are still  authors out there whom I haven’t read, and with your help I would love to find them.

Again, my thanks to Kate for her suggestion.  I welcome your reading recommendations.
