Liking the sound of this, I’ve signed up (see the button in my side bar) to read 13 books in 2013. Earlier in the week when the weather was oh, so pleasant, I took my Christmas book (thanks Kettles), some Christmas cake (thanks Karen) on my Christmas plate (thanks Miss V), with a cuppa in my Christmas mug (thanks Heather), out onto the back deck to start this challenge…
This is the latest of Kerry Greenwood’s Phryne Fisher novels, set in 1920’s Melbourne, with a mystery to be solved by the elegant and indomitable Miss Fisher. Loving it!
Reading has always been a big part of my life. Ma Kettle was a primary school teacher and spent some time as librarian as well, so through her we were encouraged to read. Library cards were de rigour and on holidays when we were away from home longer then the two weeks allowable for loaning books, we exchanged our home library cards for visitors ones at our holiday destination. As a teenager I invariably had three of four books on the go, flitting from one to the other as the mood took me, and devoured quite a few (Gone with the Wind, Famous Five, Secret Seven, Nancy Drew, anything by Mary Stewart). Like my tv viewing, I do love a murder mystery or crime thriller and there’ll be a few of those popping up in the 13!
Ooh, I’m excited by the prospect…….!!
