Friday Finds/October 24

Lots of Friday Finds this week!

1. From Literarily's Friday Finds last week:

See You in a Hundred Years: Four Seasons in Forgotten America by Logan Ward.

2. From Reading Matters:

Pies and Prejudice: In Search of the North by Stuart Maconie.

3. From Geranium Cat's bookshelf:

No Cure For Death by Hazel Holt. I bought it at my local bookstore, and began reading it yesterday!

4. From the library, I borrowed The Lighthouse by PD James. This is her latest, but one.

5. My first Martin Edwards came in the mail, The Coffin Trail.

6. and 7. At the bookstore yesterday, I also bought:

At Large and At Small by Anne Fadiman, a book of essays.
Robert Frost, a life by Jay Parini.

Now I just need to find the time to read them all!

  4. I have read The Coffin Trail. Very atmospheric, very Lake Districty.

    Happy Saturday!

  6. Popping in to say Hello and note that you have a Martin Edwards to read. I think you will enjoy it, he has written three or four set in the Lake District up in the North of England and nice tight plotting and believable characters.

    I may not visit often but you are on my blogroll and I do love looking at your lovely blog!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
