Your 2011 Just Desserts hiatus reading assignment!

simenonJust Desserts Logo 225During the Nov/Dec 2011 hiatus between meetings of the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group, we encourage regular attendees to continue to participate as a group…but in a virtual way. While we may not have an actual meeting scheduled during these two months, this blog is available to keep everyone active with their mystery reading and discussions.

Our “hiatus author” for 2011 is Georges Simenon, creator of the legendary sleuth Inspector Maigret. We encourage Just Desserts participants to read any book in the Inspector Maigret series (or watch an episode of one of the Maigret TV or movie adaptations), at some point in November or December 2011, then come back here and leave a comment about whatever you read or watched, as a response to this discussion topic.

As a bit of background, here are some links to Simenon and Maigret information:

In all, there have been 75 novels and 28 short stories written by Simenon that feature Maigret, and the Lincoln City Libraries still have over 45 of these.

We look forward to seeing your comments here over the course of the next two months!

Lee Child’s “Worth Dying For”

Just Desserts Logo 225worthdyingforDuring our March 2011 meeting, the Just Desserts mystery fiction group discussed Lee Child’s Reacher thriller, Worth Dying For, which was set in central Nebraska. 

This book was discussed at the Just Desserts meeting on March 31st, 2011. Whether or not you attended the actual meeting, you are welcome to share your own thoughts and opinions about this book (and series) in a reply comment to this blog post, below.

Join us next on April 28th, 2011, at South Branch Library (6:30 p.m.), as we discuss author Craig Johnson’s Cold Dish, the first in a popular new series that’s already seen six volumes released. Additional titles for upcoming months’ discussions have also been posted to the Book Groups page on the libraries’ BookGuide web site.

And, for additional reminders about upcoming Just Desserts meetings, don’t forget to sign up for the Just Desserts e-mail list. Or, if you’re logged into your account on Facebook, you can visit the Events page for the Lincoln City Libraries, and mark whether or not you plan to attend upcoming sessions of Just Desserts!

We encourage Just Desserts participants to read a book by Leslie Charteris (the creator of Simon Templar, “The Saint”, as well as many other novels) at some point in November or December 2009, then come back here and leave a comment about whichever Charteris book they read, as a comment post in response to this message.
