Dead Simple | Peter James
post image

Growing up near Brighton, every Friday night we had a #Chippytea picked up by my dad on his way home from work, and eaten straight from the newspaper at the kitchen table, dowsed in lots of onion vinegar (the vinegar from the picked onion jar)😋🐟📰
So in honor of my dad, this is the first book in his favorite local detective series, still going strong at book #26! I‘ll read it #oneday, seeing as it‘s set where I‘m from.😊

Cathythoughts Brilliant post 👍🏻♥️ 2w
Ms_T Lots of nostalgia for you there! Great post 😃 2w
Cinfhen Awwww, I‘m missing home for you❤️I‘d love to visit you in Brighton and hang with your dad 😁 2w

EadieB @Cinfhen I‘ve read that one and getting ready to read book 2. 2w
KarenUK @cinfhen ..... now that would be lovely! 💕 2w
Cinfhen Wouldn‘t it !?!?!?! (edited) 2w
gradcat @KarenUK & @Cinfhen Great Post! I‘ve read the first three of them, but then I guess I got sidetracked. I can‘t believe there are 26!! I had no idea! ♥️ (edited) 2w
Crazeedi @Cinfhen @gradcat @EadieB @Andrew65 @TrishB @KarenUK great post, and I haven't read this series! 2w
TrishB Lovely post ❤️ I am up to date in this series @Cinfhen 🎉🎉 2w
Andrew65 Love this book series, one of my favourites. Unfortunately as currently suffering with gall bladder issues cannot have fish and chips and I so love them, and especially by the sea! 2w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi @gradcat @EadieB @TrishB @KarenUK @Cinfhen Unfortunately I am totally up to date on this series. 2w
EadieB @Andrew65 so the problem is your gall bladder? 2w
gradcat @Andrew65 Poor you! 2w
Andrew65 @EadieB It looks like that! Testing for biliary colic and gall stones! Which are both affecting the liver. Did second set of blood tests this week today, got another blood test next week. Waiting for ultra sound scan date and got endoscopy next Saturday so feeling a bit sorry for myself, not to mention the pain. 😔 1w
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks, but possibly feeling too sorry for myself! At least when at work kept busy and keeps my mind off it. 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 So sorry to hear that you have to go through all of those tests etc. Not fun! Hope they solve your problem and you are feeling better soon! 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Yes, fingers crossed, and thanks. Hope they can solve it quickly. Not the best thing on the first week of a school year! 1w
EadieB @Andrew65 Definitely not! Good that you have your deputy to help you. But bad that she is so new and probably needs your direction. 1w
Andrew65 @EadieB Thankfully so far just been missing for small bits of the day for tests. Just not as far on as I‘d like to be. Better now than last year. (edited) 1w
LeahBergen Yum!! I‘m craving a chippy tea now! 1w
Crazeedi @Andrew65 oh man that is no fun, I had that and needed up have gall bladder removed. Hope you find some answers 1w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi Thanks, definitely agree about being no fun! Just in waiting game for scan at moment. Apparently urgent only means likely to be some time in the next two weeks! 1w
gradcat @Andrew65 I hope you get seen to sooner rather than later...isn‘t that painful? 😣 1w
Andrew65 @gradcat Thanks. Yes! Although pain going up and down. Bigger problem is what can develop from it. 🤞 Eating a very bland diet which will hopefully be less painful. 1w

Double Indemnity | James M. Cain
post image


(Day 7 - #TaintedLove)

*This movie is most definitely an example of “tainted love.” It came from the tagged novella by James M. Cain. It‘s such an oldie but goodie; I highly recommend the movie if you‘ve never seen it.

Palimpsest I adore Barbara Stanwyck (edited) 5mo
gradcat @Palimpsest I know! Wasn‘t she so great? Plus, Fred MacMurray really slays in that role! Who‘d‘ve thunk it—if you ever saw the tv show “My Three Sons”! 5mo
Cinfhen My fabulous cohosts read the book for their family bookclub and all 3 loved the book!!! It‘s still on my #OneDay list 5mo

emilyhaldi Yes!!!! Cindy is right, we loved this book 🤩 5mo
rretzler Fantastic movie. Still haven‘t read the book - which is unusual for me. 5mo
rretzler 💕 My Three Sons! 5mo
Mdargusch I almost used this book for the prompt too! Perfect! 5mo
Reviewsbylola Loved this book. Cain is awesome. 5mo
kspenmoll Great movie! 5mo
gradcat @Cinfhen You really must read it...then watch the movie...or vice versa...I think either way is fine, so long as you do it, right @emilyhaldi @Mdargusch @Reviewsbylola ? 😂👍 5mo
gradcat @kspenmoll @rretzler I think you can be forgiven for not reading the book in this case, because the movie is just that good. The book is rather short, if I‘m remembering correctly...I believe it‘s a novella. 5mo
gradcat @rretzler I forgot to mention my happiness over someone knowing “My Three Sons!” 😂🥰👍 5mo
rretzler 😂 My Three Sons was one of my favorite shows back in the day! 5mo

#TimbitTunes The tagged book has been lingering in my #BookOutlet cart for months. It‘s a book I want to read but don‘t want to read because I‘m sure it‘s going to be so heartbreaking. It was a #BlackDayInJuly when JFK Jr plane disappeared after a stormy night takeoff. Carole Radziwill was a close friend of the couple & they were related through marriage. It‘s her account of this tragedy coupled with the illness of her husband.

LeahBergen That seems like yesterday. 😩 7mo
Cinfhen 1999 @LeahBergen crazzzy!!!!! 7mo
Crazeedi This was just a tragedy 7mo

Cinfhen Yes, it‘s a moment you don‘t forget @Crazeedi like when Princess Diana was killed or you learned Michael Jackson has passed away😢😢😢 And obviously the towers falling will forever be etched in my psyche 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks It‘s so sad, but so good!! 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen you forgot Prince💜 7mo
Cinfhen You‘re right!! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks but I honestly don‘t remember where I was when I heard about Prince. 7mo
Sweettartlaura You know his aunt, Lee Radziwill, just died, yes? Jackie‘s younger sister. 7mo
BarbaraBB Did Lady Diana‘s death make such an impression in the States? I wouldn‘t have imagined! And yes, I too can remember exactly where I was when hearing of her death, Michael Jackson‘s and 9/11 😢 7mo
Cinfhen Yes, I saw that @Sweettartlaura Lee Radziwill was Carole‘s MIL. 7mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! It was massive in the states @BarbaraBB Diana was so beloved 😍 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Cinfhen I was at work 😭😭😭 we all made little symbols for our badges !! (edited) 7mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @BarbaraBB it did on me,,, I remember where I was that night too... 😭😭😭 7mo
TrishB This does seem like yesterday 😔 time flies.... 7mo
KarenUK I did actually buy it from book outlet but now it‘s lingering on my shelves for the same reason!#infinitetissueread 😢 7mo
Reviewsbylola Amazing book! I still remember when I first heard his plane went missing. I need to reread this one. 7mo

Brooklyn reminds me of something i really really want to get to soon.

Well, Francie decided, 'I guess the thing that is giving me this headache is life - and nothing else but'.

"Their first born was my brother Arturo, usually known as Aqua Boy. His hands and feet were in the form of flippers that sprouted directly from his torso without intervening arms or legs. He was taught to swim in infancy and was displayed nude in a big clear-sighted tank like an aquarium."

@Robothugs @Cinfhen

Robothugs I must read this book 11mo
Leniverse My favourite bunch of unlikeable characters! 11mo
Cinfhen #SoManyBooksSoLittleTime #OneDay I‘m not sure if I‘ll hate it or love it!?!???! 11mo
valeriegeary @Cinfhen it's a really weird book, I can't remember if I liked it or not but I think I'm glad I read it. It was an experience. 🤔 11mo
Cinfhen That‘s an honest answer!! I‘ll have to try the book for myself. Thanks 😉 11mo
