Oh yes. Closest connection was my father volunteering in a Wildlife Trust located in the Abbey.

I tend to not read more than two books by any author in a row. More than that and I start picking up on the author's lazy habits. It may be overused phrases or the fact that all their protagonists have green eyes or drive the same car. Once I notice I get annoyed and can never unsee it so I need a break to let the details fade a bit.

Need to get back to those. Read through #3 and have all through #6 in my library. And just looked at the series on Amazon. 21? Almost as bad as the Marcus Didius Falco series sitting at 20.

And don't forget that one that is out of order. The short story collection, A Rare Benedictine was released around #13 in the series.

Compared to the 1632/Ring of Fire or In Death series, 21 books is just getting started.

Another series on my list to be read, I'll have to move it up the queue.

I have so many series and books I want to read, I'm not sure if I should thank you for the reminder or not.

I pretty much binge read if the series already exists. Sometimes I may leave for awhile and then pick it back up if I've grown tired of the material.

I have read 20 books in a series, one right after another before.

It depends. But mostly I read other things between, rather than going straight through from first to last.

One Caveat. When I started reading the Brother Cadfael books some years ago, I read the first book and thought this is good.

I then started binge reading the others as they were all in our local library. I quickly found that for me most of the Cadfael books were very samey, with the same character types, plot devices etc.

It is said about some authors that they have had XX books published but have written the same book XX times. It felt like that for me with the Cadfael books.

I only picked this up because I binge read them. If/when I reread them I will leave a good time gap between titles so this is not evident

Thanks for the heads up about that series. Now I'm even more curious about it and might start it after my current series, which is Cormoran Strike (and I'm sorry I took so long to get to this series, I'm enjoying it).

It depends on the series or type of books. Usually with mysteries I don't and draw them out. If it's something like a romance series or paranormal that I'm really into it, I'll read it all at once.

Mostly binge. It can depend on how much action/adventure/thriller they are.

If they're hard hitting and action packed, I'll take a break after three or so. Most have the action with a slow time between for the characters to rest, but if I binge on them I can feel burned out.

OTOH, some cozy mysteries are nice and relaxed. So relaxed that after three or so I feel the need to pause for something a bit more exciting.

I have the Eve Dallas series, and at one point had read up to 10. I'll need to restart when I dive back in, but I don't think I'll binge the whole thing. But I did start the Barbara Hambly's "Benjamin January" series and HAD to read all 18 books and five short stories in a row, because I was just too caught up with the character and the setting to move on.

So it really just depends.
