Help me

I am trapped by the 30 day cast on......

Honestly the i-cord cast on is the nicest cast on in very many ways

but it takes forever.

I actually was stuck with my nose in a book yesterday.  I honestly don't remember when the last time was that I got so deep into a book, that i could not put it down.

Friends suggested the mysteries written by C J Sansom, a series of 5 novels I believe, which takes place in the time of Henry VIII.  I ended up buying the first, Dissolution,  and will probably buy them all on paper because I cannot imagine not owning these books, not rereading these books.

Wow.  Just wow.  My battery died on my tablet and I had to stop for a recharge and I can only say that was the longest two hours of my life.  I had to wait because I couldn't find the cord and the only recharger I had available to me was the stand charger that I have by my bedside. 

I have read 5 new novels so far this year, in the National Just Read More Novels Month thing that I do, and this one blows even the redoubtable Miss Silver to the winds.

So, if you are, like me, stuck in a forever cast on, consider reading Dissolution.  Or any of the other 4.  Really great reads.

I'm on the fourth mystery, thanks to you! Sometimes when you binge read an entire series all at once you start to see the flaws and can start guessing what's going to happen next (which I hate) but these have held up great. Each one shows a different facet of the time and they are all very interesting and entertaining. Can't beat a combo of historical fiction and mystery!

Thanks for the Samson link. I am always on the lookout for great new - or at least new to me - authors.
