    1. Isn't that the funniest thing. Amazing. Even when we have different 'big' and 'small' months, they seem to even out.

  5. I'm close to you and Cath -just finished #17.
    Great seeing all the Agatha Christie books; I loved how Precious and Grace finally met their author; and Daddy Long-Legs! such a great story; and finally, I've been meaning to read Strong Poison as I've heard such great stuff about that series.
    Wonderful to see the update.

    1. Isn't that just something. So surprising to me.
      Loved all the ones you mentioned. SP is very literate. It was a treat to be within its pages. And there are beautiful new editions of the Harriet Vane Wimsey books.

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.
