Anne Thought of you when I snagged it for my Pintrest page. Heh


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* Another Christie Classic.


message 4: by Evgeny (new)

Evgeny I take pride in being able to follow Poirot reasoning in Dead Man's Folly... for the first half of the book. Then I got lost :(


message 5: by Anne (new)

Anne Erin...yep! Classic!


message 6: by Anne (new)

Anne Evgeny, I now to your supremacy. BOW!

message 8: by Trish (new)

Trish Only you, Anne, could manage to (successfully) include Thomas in an Agatha Christie review! :D


message 9: by Anne (new)

Anne Why thank you, Trish! Heh.

Anne Sud666, this is one of my favorites of hers, & one of only 2 hardcopys that I kept in my Great Book Purge of 2014.

*lol* great book purge eh? I almost never get rid of books-save when I replace my paperbacks with hardcovers..then I will leave my paperbacks in these little kiosks we have around town a "Give a book or Take a book" thing...I think its cool because it helps people to read :)


message 12: by Anne (new)

Anne Ha! Yeah, I donate mine too. I hate to think of a book languishing on my shelf, never to be read again. Seems like a waste to keep them all to myself!

ahhh..no I have two nice libraries set up- one for books and one for comics and graphic novels....but my paperbacks I do donate when they are replaced..

Wolfrott Her books I found aren't all that great; I guessed the ending / plot twist of Hallowe'en Party.

Trish *shudders* Book purges! Monsters! I already feel guilty when giving away books I have more than once (it happens sometimes).

I don't purge books..only people :) Only paperbacks that are being replaced do I give away or put in the Book Kiosk

*lol* Well, I usually don't buy ardbacks for paperbacks - only in very rare cases of my fvourite books if there are great editions. I've been trying to give away a few I have double but no library, no charity or any other place want them. If this continues, I'll have to ... dare I say it? ... throw them away!

Thats strange that no library or charity will take them....you should demand an additional room for your books...don't you have a family member you can send away and take their rooms for your books?

Trust me, I keep pushing my little sister to move in with her boyfriend compeltely (they are already living together but most of her stuff is still here). ;P When that room becomes "available" I'll plaster all four walls with shelves. But I will still need to find out what to do with books I have double. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.

Good call...you should also think about building a little shack or something in your garden so you can sit there are read in peace..a small one room structure

Our garden isn't that big. We already have the usual shed for tools and my greenhouse so there's not much space left. The greenhouse however, while I had plan of sitting in there reading, gets too humid for me.

can you invade your neighbor's plot of land? you could claim some kind of Anschluss and then build (or have THEM build) your reading house :)

BWAHAHAHAHA. I shall elaborate that invasion plan when they get on my nerves again. ;)

I got that one half-way through, as well! I think you have to sort of..look at them for what the are/were? Definitely not an exciting read by today's standards.

Good grief! You guys and your books! I'm almost afraid to give any away now!

Alissa Patrick that Thomas gif is the best

Anne If I said I secretly haaaaaated Thomas the Train, would anyone still love me?

Yup me, and we could ride into the sunset together, both hating that BS equally. ;)


message 29: by Dana (new)

Dana I loved this book too. And I'm not normally one for mysteries. I love when a book surprises me like that.

Kid Jeff never really liked the show. I always wished that Thomas, pulling dozens of cars of toxic waste at high speed, would derail and the contents would spew all over Make Believe ville and reduce the Conductor, as played by Ringo, and the kids, into skeltons.

I can dream...
