Reading Time for Mystery Books

Written by on March 22, 2014 in Just for Fun with 2 Comments

We have more excuses for you to read mystery books. Not that you really need an excuse to read the next mystery on your list, but why not have a little fun while you are at it. Wacky Holidays make great excuses. And we found a few more just for fun.

Summer Wacky Holidays for Reading Mystery Books

June 10th is Iced Tea Day. Just picture it. A warm summer afternoon, a tall glass of iced tea by your side and suddenly the suspects come into view. You wiggle slightly in your chair. The clues are growing in number, the protagonist is approaching danger, and the mystery has you glued to the pages of the book. Gulp down another mouthful of iced tea and you are celebrating Iced Tea Day with a great mystery novel.

Then get ready. July 21st is National Junk Food Day. This one may take a little planning, but it can be a great one. Grab your current mystery book and head to your favorite fast food place. Picture a large, juicy burger in front of you and the pages of your mystery book at your side. Before you even know what happened, the burger and fries are gone and the murder is solved. Now that’s my kind of lunch!

Mystery Books of All Kinds

It doesn’t really matter what kind of mystery book you like to read. Cozy or armchair mysteries, British detective series, hard-boiled mysteries all can be part of an excuse to read on a wacky holiday.

Think of the fun of telling your family, “Sorry, this is Iced Tea Day. I must read my mystery book.” The first time, they will think you’re crazy. But soon they will get used to your excuses for reading time.

So take any excuse to read a mystery novel. Wacky Holidays are just a few.
