31. G is for Gumshoe, Sue Grafton

It always surprises me to discover that I enjoy the mystery genre. I rarely pick it up willingly (as was the case with this one--I was in a situation with nothing else around to read) with the sole exception of Agatha Christie. But I had fun with this book. It's pretty much exactly what you're looking for when you're looking for a series mystery. The dialogue is snappy, the main character is quirky and interesting, and the mystery gets solved in 250 pages or less. There was nothing deep here at all, just pure brain candy. I may surprise myself and go looking for a few more of the books in the series.
