Whatever is happening in other parts of the UK here the brisk cold is relieved by beautiful clear skies and bright sunshine. Long may it continue.

I have finished reading Lumen by Ben Pastor, and shortly will be writing a review for Euro Crime.

The kind Mrs Crime Scraps bought me a Kindle. The fact I can enlarge the font on this device will make it a vital reading aid as there are several books that I have been unable to read recently because of the small fonts. I might even delve into those classics that I never read at school because I was on the science side! Font enlargement and the fact you can carry a whole library around with you are the big advantages. The ease with which you can buy books could be a financial disadvantage.

But there are so many books on my TBR shelf it will have to be print for a while longer, and I am now reading Poisonville by Massimo Carlotto and Marco Videta. The title is of course almost certainly a tribute to Red Harvest by Dashiell

My reviews of Massimo Carlotto’s novels; The Colombian Mule, The Master of Knots, Death’s Dark Abyss, The Fugitive.
Also a short post about Massimo Carlotto.

Later this week I will be posting a Winter Quiz with prizes!
