So, after some pasta and an episode of House (he needs to stay with Domenika in my opinion), I am reasonably refreshed and ready to start gain. The results so far are::

  • Currently reading: haven’t decided on my next book; should it be more crime or a ghost story?
  • Books finished: 4
  • Pages read: 140
  • Running total of pages read: 653
  • Amount of time spent reading: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 5 hours 10 minutes
  • Mini-challenges completed: maybe later
  • Other participants I’ve visited: 2

Think I’m feeling ghost story-ish.

Currently wallowing in the glory that is 1930s crime fiction, but what you really want are the stats:

  • Currently reading: Death Walks in Eastrepps by Francis Beeding
  • Books finished: 3
  • Pages read: 114
  • Running total of pages read: 513
  • Amount of time spent reading: 1 hour 25 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 4 hours
  • Mini-challenges completed: decided not to participate for the moment
  • Other participants I’ve visited: 1

So from 1970’s English convent via Edwardian Dartmoor and the literary world of Angela Carter to East Anglia in the 1930s – what next?

Had a bit of a break just after four o’clock to stretch my legs, rest my eyes and do some chores, but back in the saddle. The current stats:

  • Currently reading: Just about to start Death Walks in Eastrepps by Francis Beeding
  • Books finished: 3
  • Pages read: 106
  • Running total of pages read: 399
  • Amount of time spent reading: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 3 hours 35 minutes
  • Mini-challenges completed: 0
  • Other participants I’ve visited: 1

The book about Angela Carter was fascinating and made me want to revisit her stuff. My next book is a Golden Age police procedural so I’m pleased that the Book God has made me a nice mug of tea

First of all, the stats:

  • Currently reading: I haven’t selected my next book yet but it’s likely to be A Card from Angela Carter
  • Books finished: 2
  • Pages read: 113
  • Running total of pages read: 293
  • Amount of time spent reading: 45 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Mini-challenges completed: 0
  • Other participants I’ve visited: 1

Baskerville not quite what I expected, though come to think of it I’m not actually sure what I  did expect but very good all the same. So far my reading has taken me to an English convent in the 1970s and Dartmoor in 1902; where next?

First of all, the stats:

  • Currently reading: The Baskerville Legacy by John O’Connell
  • Books finished: 1
  • Pages read: 103
  • Running total of pages read: 180
  • Amount of time spent reading: 55 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 1 hour 45 minutes
  • Mini-challenges completed: 0
  • Other participants I’ve visited: 1

The Abbess of Crewe was a re-read and extremely enjoyable. Am well into Baskerville, all very mysterious so far, I like first person narratives like this! Very quiet, all I can hear is birdsong.

First of all, the stats:

  • Currently reading: The Abbess of Crewe by Muriel Spark
  • Books finished: 0
  • Pages read: 77
  • Running total of pages read: 77
  • Amount of time spent reading: 50 minutes
  • Running total of time spent reading: 50 minutes
  • Mini-challenges completed: 0

Going well so far, had a very nice lunch of lemon and coriander hummus and oatcakes.
