Nero Wolfe

Lately, I've been on a Nero Wolfe kick.  What can I say?  I love mysteries and I fell in love with this series years ago when it was on television.  The flow between Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin is so much fun.

I pulled this list of Nero Wolfe novels from wikipedia.  I'm trying to go through the series in the order they were published.  I just finished "In the Best of Families" and am off to figure out if I'm downloading the next book from Overdrive or requesting it from my local library.
