I haven’t really had any interest in roaming used book stores lately. There’s definitely something wrong with me:(  But I have picked up a few here and there at thrift shops over the last few months…


Round the Bend by Neville Shute
The Voyage by Philip Caputo
The Message of Truth by Jacqueline Winspear
A Pigeon and a Boy by Meir Shalev
A Dog’s Ransom by Patricia Highsmith
Friends, Lovers and Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith – Isabel Dalhousie Book
The Careful Use of Compliments by Alexander McCall Smith – Isabel Dalhousie Book
Death at the Beggar’s Opera by Deryn Lake
Falling Slowly and A Friend From England by Anita Brookner
Bonheffer: Letters & Papers From Prison

I also bought the new book by Amir Tsarfati, The Last Hour: An Israeli Insider Looks at The End Times.I’ve just finished that one and it was excellent. The Beckoning Dream by Evelyn Berckman just came in today’s mail. Had to have it after reading armchair reviewers review @ Crossexamingcrime

I’m really looking forward to reading A Pigeon and A Boy and The Voyage!

Some books I’ve read this fall and not wrote about…

  1. Living Life Backwards by David Gibson
  2. The Camomile Lawn by Mary Wesley
  3. Red Bones by Ann Cleeves
  4. The Crossing Place by Elly Griffiths
  5. The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths
  6. The Homestead by Rosina Lippi
  7. Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie

I’ve been enjoying the Shetland series by Ann Cleeves and won a signed copy of Raven Black on Instagram!

Also started the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths and enjoy those too.

We are off north to visit family and my kids for Christmas. I’ll get to be with the grandkids on Christmas day! Taking The Footsteps at the Lock by Ronald A. Knox to read. It’s a very old book (1928) that is rather hard to find. I put it on my wishlist on Paperbackswap not ever expecting to get it and low and behold I did!

I’d better get going, we are going to the movies tonight to see The Mule with Clint Eastwood and I have to pack my suitcase. Have a wonderful Christmas! I’ll be thinking of you all ❤️

  1. I know you will enjoy visiting with your family.

    That stack of books looks very good.

    I have enjoyed all the Ann Cleeves novels I have read. I have only read a couple by Elly Griffiths but will try more.
