At the Maud Marks Library, we are currently looking at the mystery genre for our summers adult genre challenge. Remember, read 5 different genres and get an entry for our grand prize book basket which includes a Kindle Fire, a $25 gift card to Katy Budget Books, and 4 tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse. As always, we would like to thank the Friends of the Maud Marks Library, Katy Budget Book, and the Alamo Drafthouse for their generous assistance to our genre challenge and Summer Reading Program.
So, why read a mystery book this summer? Mysteries examine human nature, probing the why, the who and how. Justice is at the heart of the solution in a mystery. When "legal justice" is not an option, investigators take the law into their own hands. Most of the time readers can expect the good guys to win and the bad guys to be punished.
