It's Official!

I read a lot. I love to read. I read all kinds of books - a whole bunch of potboilers but a nice mix of "serious" reading, too. I read on the BART train on my morning and evening commutes and, mostly, I read during my lunch break, too. I have always prized my library card and I'm delighted now to live close to cousins J-Yah and Sher with whom I trade books I liked for ones they enjoyed.

So, I guess you could say I've always been a bookworm, but now it's official. I'm the latest Bookworm on the wonderful Perfect Pantry blog, recommending this week a fun series of mysteries featuring M. Pamplemousse, a bumbling French detective who happens also to write reviews for a famous restaurant guide, aided by his faithful Bloodhound, Pommes Frites.

Hope you will enjoy a few of these lighthearted and amusingly written mysteries as your pots boil over!

I will have to remember those when I start reading adult books once more. Seriously.

Dagny, well, I guess you could call them adult books...but not very! Just light reading and fun.

Oh my, he's the chap who wrote the Paddington Bear books I LOVED those books and will be visiting the 2nd hand bookshop on the way home this very day - thanks for the heads up!

DMM, I'm glad you are pleased and I think you'll enjoy a chuckle or two at these books.

M. Pamplemousse is all out of print but I found the first one via a second-hand book site - it arrived on Friday and I'm halfway through - just loving it. Thanks again.
