Crime novel update

I meant to mention in my previous post:


Thanks, all, for your comments in my post about
href="http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=wlonkly&itemid=15079">crime
writing. My to-read shelf is filling up fast!


I found a neat local bookstore,
Prime
Crime
, which happened to be a whole block away from the Bridgehead I
tend to show up in after work to read for a bit. They carry nothing but
mystery and crime books, and while their selection tends more towards
mystery than crime (and their clientele tends more towards 60s than
20s!), I was able to pick up a few books from your recommendations:
Carl Hiaasen’s Tourist Season, Hammett’s The Maltese
Falcon
, and Lethem’s Gun, With Occasional Music.


That plus the other dozen or so books on the shelf will keep me
occupied until thaw.


That reminds me: Any recommendations for LJ book-related communities
that aren’t really only about English lit? I need to talk and read about
books more, and it’s hard to find a venue.
