How many times have you started a book,
only to put it down way before the end,
with no intention to ever pick it back up again?
It doesn’t happen to me often;
but ‘twice’ in one week?!
One was a 99p special that promised to be okay, one was an old ‘horror’ book from an author from the 70’s and beyond.
My tastes may have changed on the second one, my strong dislike of unnecessary crude language put me off of the first.
So, I returned to the sanctity of an Agatha. Miss Marple to the rescue once more.
And, normal service has been resumed.
It’s not that I don’t try (and like) new books – ‘The Lip’ by Charlie Carroll was interesting – but I do tend to follow the authors that have established themselves upon my reading lists.
Right! I’m off to see what is happening with the murder investigation at Chipping Cleghorn.
