Carl - I never saw Firefly, one of those instances where I learned about it in the middle and didn't want to try and catch up. I have it and the follow-up film in my Netflix queue.

Yes, I know he wrote another Resnick, though I saw a weak review or two. That is a case where I set them aside and just forgot about them. Every time I'd see mention of Harvey I'd think I need to get back to reading those and then, in the blizzard of other books swirling around this place, I'd forget again. I also have that porous memory, or maybe I should just say lousy memory in my case. I can't even remember what I ate for breakfast...wait, it was Cheerios. But I know that because it's what I eat every day.

Now that Harvey has brought back Charlie Resnick you can read the older ones, Rick. I saved the last Maigret for several years but eventually read it. And I have Crider's porous memory so I've forgotten a lot of these things and can read them again if I want to.

I've done that a few times. I remember putting off The Last Colony by John Scalzi because I wasn't ready for the Old Man's War series to end. And then it didn't, because he released Zoe's Tale. I've done this with television as well. I put off watching the final episode of Firefly on DVD and the final few episodes of DS9 when I watched it on DVD because I did not want the series to end.

"What if later never comes?" is exactly the dilemma of postponing the reading of the final books in a beloved series. That's why I took the plunge and read the final Rumpole. And I'm only 25 of Trollope's 47 novels. But I'm working my way through his books, too. My goal is to complete reading all of Trollope's work by 2014.

Yep, Randy, that's it for certain. Thing is, I have so darn many books to read, I'm not sure if it makes sense to set any aside for later... what if later never comes?

I get it, Richard. I saved The Maltese Falcon for a number of years just because it was the last Hammett novel I had to read. Now Spade and Archer sets perched on my TBR pile waiting for that "right" moment.

I'm sure George Kelley could relate to that one, though I'm sure he's read all 47.

One of my profs in grad school said, "Anthony Trollope wrote 47 novels, and I've read 45 of them. I'm saving two for my old age."
