Brainless reading

So yesterday, cooler for some values of cooler, I was updating my sad reading stats when the brain said 'But wait! Didn't you read this other book? The one from the library sale? The uhh murder mystery wasn't it---' I wasn't sure if that wasn't brain short-circuiting, like the 'but did I feed the rabbit?' glitch I had for a while there. (I don't own a rabbit. Never did.) I had no recollection of plot or setting or even was it a mystery and not a fantasy, but vaguely remembered buying something at the library. Had to search three rooms' bookshelves, but yes-- a forensic mystery called Skullduggery, set in Mexico, and referencing a physiological condition (delayed epiphyseal union) last run across in my teens in attempts to date the mummy that might have been Akhenaton's. You'd think I'd have retained something of it, but I'm not even sure when I read it.
