Any interest in the Kinsey Millhone alphabet series by Sue Grafton?

As stated in the 2017 MetaFilter post, Sue Grafton was "a prolific author of detective novels known for an alphabetically titled series that began in 1982 with ‘A Is for Alibi’…” Her Kinsey Millhone books are quick, delightful and great fun to read.

Previous/Next post for Books and/or Clubs?

If not for books because metadata, then how about for the club links instead? E.g. the M&C post would have a previous to "I am with child...", and a next to Post Captain?
