Book-a-holic sound less pretentious than bibliophile, but I come under both categories.
What’s New this week?
Well I have been naughty and spent money on some bargains items on Amazon UK, all brand new editions.
Arsenic and Old Books (Cat in the Stacks #6) by Miranda James – in hardback at a steal!
Death of a Dishonorable Gentleman (Lady Montfort Mystery #1) by Tessa Arlen – in hardcover, another steal.
How to Tail a Cat (The Cats and Curios Mystery #4) by Rebecca M. Hale – in paperback.
Here Today, Gone Tamale (A Taste of Texas Mystery #1) by Rebecca Adler – in paperback, the most expensive item out of the lot!
The Pickled Piper (Pickled & Preserved Mystery #1) by Mary Ellen Hughes in paperback.
And Hocus Pocus on DVD. Well we are coming up to Halloween! I love this film and so did my youngest nephew, as I think he wore out my VHS video copy, as my niece wore out my Dirty Dancing video. This has been the first chance that I have had the money to purchase it at a lower price.
On the Kindle front.
I got the omnibus edition of the first 4 books in the Lord Francis Powerscourt Series by David Dickinson.
And The Garden Plot (Potting Shed Mystery #1) by Marty Wingate.
Doom with a View (Merry Ghost Inn #2) by Kate Kingsbury.
It was a toss-up between Doom, and Body on Baker Street (A Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery #2) by Vicki Delany…maybe at the weekend Vicki, as I have just got my new Audible UK credits. 🙂
What am I reading at the moment this week?
Renting Silence (Roaring Twenties Mystery #3) by Mary Miley. I’m loving this series and was lucky at getting a copy at our library…well they are published by Severn House and seem to share their books both sides of the pond, unlike another publisher I could mention!
I have read the first chapter of The Secret, Book and Scone Society (Miracle Springs, North Carolina #1) by Ellery Adams…you have me hooked Ellery! 😀
Listening to The Saltmarsh Murders (Mrs. Bradley #4) by Gladys Mitchell, on disc via the dvd player in the living room. Always good to revisit with Mrs. Bradley.
A Beautiful Blue Death (Charles Lenox Mysteries #1) by Charles Finch. Enjoying it so far…but then I’m only a few chapters in.
On another nostalgia front…I have started re-reading the first in the Charlie Chan books – The House Without a Key by Earl Derr Biggers. It has been a long while since I read this book and I’m enjoying it all over again.
Deadly Brew (A Dewberry Farm Mystery #3) by Karen MacInerney. To set the mood for Halloween.
I could keep listing books…but it would be endless!
