A pet peeve
Okay, it’s so trivial that it’s more like a pet-rock peeve, but it bugs the hell out of me.
Why can’t authors number the books in a series?
Or, if not number them (though that is the easiest option), at least provide a sequenced list inside the book or on a website or somewhere? Robert B Parker, one of my favorite mystery authors, has a website in which the series are broken out listed in alphabetical order! What the F? I’m trying to remember which book was the second-most-recent book in the Jesse Stone series and have to click on every title on the list, write down the title and publication date, and then put them in order.
Well, it’s not like I’m going to get it out of the library any time soon. I’m 167th on the list at the Minute Man Library.
