That's why I'm going with Ellis Peters, because I have had Brother Cadfael on the brain for weeks now, and I'm curious enough about him to figure I'll probably read this book relatively quickly. If not, I will end up trying some non-fiction. And if that doesn't work, I might go for something very short. The problem with picking things to read in this state of mind is that I don't want to pick anything I have been very excited about before the slump started, because I run the risk of being frustrated or irritated by it when normally I would love it.
This comes on the verge of NaNoWriMo, too, which may mean that my book/week count may be astonishingly low next month. Just warning.
From One Corpse Too Many by Ellis Peters, p48 ("he" is Brother Cadfael):
"Your lordship will have had orders about us," he said briskly. "We are here to take charge of the dead, and I require clean and adequate space where they may be decently laid until we take them away for burial."
