Today I was met at work by a fellow librarian. She had a grocery bag full of books. For me. To Read. She’s discovered I am a fan of British mysteries. I fell in love with Agatha Christie when I was in sixth grade and decided I was going to be a writer (ok, and a teacher and an archaeologist).
What’s my point? Well, even we librarians need help. Yes, librarians get in reading ruts. It doesn’t matter what form the story is in book, e-books or audio. Who can read it all? Are you in a rut? Drop by and chat with us. The staff at the Falmouth Memorial Library enjoy talking about, and sharing what we’re reading. Doesn’t matter if it’s fiction, non-fiction, ask us to help you redirect your reading. We can show you some of the tools we use.
So, what was in the bag of books… “Aftermath” by Peter Robinson, “Where Memories Lie” by Deborah Crombie, “Blackout” by John Lawton and “Grave Goods” by Ariana Franklin. It appears these are all from series, but none the titles in my bag are firsts, but they give me a start. Are these “readalikes” for Agatha Christie? No and not all the authors are actually British. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know what I’ve picked to read and why.
