Simon at Savidge Reads and Eva at A Striped Armchair both had thoughtful posts today about "How We Read." Posts that made me think of my own reading life. And there is one absolute about how and what I read. I occasionally need a reading palate cleanser. And I almost always pick a mystery. A habit from childhood. And a great source of personal glee.
Many have heard me gush about one of my favorites of late, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. Well today, the much anticipated sequel comes out, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag. Which I will devour sometime in the next few days. Devour. Because Flavia de Luce is the most devilishly clever eleven year. And she gave her bike a name. Gladys. She has her own chemistry lab. Country house in England circa 1950. Wicked. Addictive. So, so glad this is a series. More here.
What do you read that makes you near giddy?
