I think I have found the source for That Line in the horror movie The Witch: “Dost thou wish to live deliciously?”
71-year-old Amesbury widow Susannah Martin was accused by a man from Salisbury of witchcraft. He said she offered him the devil‘s book to sign so that he would receive “all the delectable things, person, and places that he could imagine”.

Dost thou wish butter? And fine dresses? Dost thou wish to live deliciously? #horror #history

VioletBramble In Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix) the witches have on a few occasions described their satan given powers as delicious. I didn‘t realize that was a witchy thing. 1d

Ride a Cockhorse | Raymond Kennedy
Pickpick

It‘s been many years since I read this book, but it has remained a favorite. A rare funny piece of serious literature. Kennedy‘s Francis Fitzgibbons is essentially another Kennedy‘s Ignatius J Reilly. A comedy of manners without the manners.

What did you read in November? Have you read any of the above?

I clearly went on a bit of Sailor Moon kick but also read some other excellent things and managed 3 books over 500 pages and to read both my poetry book of the month and the classics for bookclub for two consecutive months (Dracula and the Secret History).

Day 5 - #BodyInTheSleigh #KatherineHallPage #HollyJollyReads #SharedHolidayTradition #WinterGames #JingleBallers

This is a great series which starts with the book #MurderInTheBelfry. Must get back to this series!

Sleigh rides (without the dead body) are holiday traditions especially when we get lots of snow!

OriginalCyn620 Ha! I‘ve never been on a sleigh ride but I‘m sure I would prefer them without dead bodies! 😂🎄 3d
EadieB @OriginalCyn620 You have to be careful when you use snowmobiles on fields as I‘ve heard of people running into wires stretched across fields used as boundary lines which could catch you in the neck and decapitate you. (edited) 3d
OriginalCyn620 Yikes @EadieB! Maybe I‘ll pass on the sleigh ride... 3d
EadieB @OriginalCyn620 sounds like a good idea! 3d
