Memorial Day reading

The Moonstone - Joy Connolly, Wilkie Collins The Division Bell Mystery - Ellen Wilkinson The Body in the Library - Agatha Christie

I've finished the Death on the Nile reread, which I loved, as I knew that I would, so all of my holdover reading has been completed.


Unfortunately, I have a very busy couple of weeks ahead, with two significant trials, so I'm spending most of my weekend with my work computer, building my trial books and prepping. I worked for 6 hours yesterday, and probably will work for the same or more today & tomorrow. 


There is a little bit of time available for reading, though, and I've settled on my extra Memorial Day reads:


28: Read a book that is identified as romance or chick-lit, or that has a cover that is more than 50% pink.


I was on the fence about this one, but then I checked out my small collection of Black Dog & Levanthal Agatha Christie hardbacks and realized that The Body in the Library is more than 50% pink. This is one that I haven't reread in a long time, and it's a good one!


6. Read a book set in your home town, state, or country or that you checked out of your local library or that has been on your (physical) bookshelves since last summer.


I dithered on this one quite a bit, but settled on the Barnes and Noble Classics edition of The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, which fills one of my few remaining Detection Club bingo spaces. I'd really like to finish up with that project in June.


16. Read a book that is a mystery or suspense, or which has a title that contains all of the letters in the word C-A-B-I-N.


I am planning on reading The Division Bell Mystery by Ellen Wilkinson, which I checked out of the library. Tigus liked it, so I have high hopes! This will leave me with just 3 open squares on my Detection Club bingo card!
