#coffeeabdbooks #2nddayofchristmas #holidayread #holidaymystery #shortcrimestories

Leisurely sipping French Roast and reading Paul Temple‘s White Christmas by Francis Durbridge.This collection has introduced me to several new detection/crime 20th c authors.Apparently many of Paul Temple‘s & his journalist compatriot, Steve‘s,adventures in crime solving were originally written as radio plays.Audible has some remastered; I plan to listen to one.

@catiewithac ! Thanks so much for this amazing #CreepyChristmas swap parcel. You truly stalked me well! 😆

I‘m so excited for the two British Library Crime Classics and I‘m in LOVE with these socks (the carpet pattern from the movie of The Shining 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻). That fab True Crime sticker is going right into my 2021 reading journal and I love the card 😂😂 and Reese‘s chocolate, too. Thank you, thank you! 😘😘

Thanks to @teebe for the fun swap!

I've been rubbish at getting round to Christmas cards again this year, and I don't think they'll arrive in time by now anyway. So I've made a donation to Book trust again this year for our #jbuk group https://www.booktrust.org.uk/

TrishB Sounds fab 👍🏻 2y
squirrelbrain Great idea! ❤️ 2y
Caroline2 Brilliant idea! 😀 2y
eraderneely ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
eraderneely Also, I read the tagged book for Book Club last year. There are a few good stories in it! (and one creepy ghost) 2y

A solid collection of Golden Age mysteries, some of which have clever twists indeed. Refreshing to read in the middle of a heatwave.

From the intro to the story Crime at Lark Cottage: its author is John Bingham, a colleague of David Cornwell‘s / John le Carré‘s who was a key inspiration for the character of George Smiley ???‍♂️

First finished book of 2020, and a fine Christmas read. I enjoyed the selection and range of these stories, and appreciated the background on each author.

She is totally judging my book choice. I‘m enjoying the murder mysteries though. A stab in the dark is so festive. 🔪 🎄

Thank you @jhod @RachelO and @kathedron for the lovely Christmas cards!
I read the tagged book for book club. It was a mixed bag, but the only one I hated was the ghost story.

rockpools Merry Christmas Emily! 3y

I am so far behind on my Christmas to do list that I am feeling less heartwarming (holiday romance) and more murderous (holiday mystery) so I chose this one for Day 9 of the #bookadventcalendar. @LeahBergen

Deifio I guess christmas is a time of opposites? Love and murder 😜😅 3y
eraderneely Reading this for book club at the moment 3y
BookNAround @eraderneely I hope you‘re enjoying it. Don‘t know if I‘ll get far enough on my to do list to actually crack it open this year or not! 3y
LeahBergen I almost ordered this recently. 😆 3y
