    I did take a peek at what happened going on in the series, but it didn`t quite click for me. Have you tried the Kathy Reichs ones ?

    So, I finally read my first Round Robin book, The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths. Did I like it ? Yes. Am I glad I read it ? Nooo. Other than that, it reminded me of Kathy Reichs` Temperance Brennan books, which I enjoy. The Crossing Places is set in Norfolk and involves an archaeologist ( Ruth Galloway ) at a Norfolk University being co-opted onto a case involving a missing girl. I could`ve done without Ruth calling herself fat repeatedly and I did figure out whodunnit quite early on, but I think this is a book which someone else might really like. There are some vivid descriptions of Ruth`s home in the Saltmarsh and some interesting discussions of Archaeological-type stuff.

    So now I`m thinking, `only ` 500 more books till I need to feel worried about my TBR !

    And Kindles don`t have an exciting scent either. I do prefer `real` books, but having got to `know` lots of authors through giving their books a go on Kindle...

    Fun article on giving up ( or not ) on a book you don`t enjoy. Click. The Cut.com.

    I read lots of new books on Kindle U. and found some great, new (to me ) authors. It`s a fab way to try out books. Mount TBR ( ) has climbed steadily. I haven`t dared do a count this year, for fear that it`s now above 900.

    I *may* be able to find a book to read...

    Ah, lovely Paddington.. I think the longest mysetries* were 5+ hours. * I`ve given up trying to spell it.

    Ooh, all those culture sections with their book reviews...
  12. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Yes - they`re mainly mysteries, which don`t tend to be Mighty Tomes.
  13. Little Pixie`s Bookshelf 2018

    Yes ! I found plenty of goodies. I think you`ll get ahead of me with `books read ` soon, cos I`ll be catching up with newspapers and magazines.
