Christmas Reading

Posted in Blogging with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2012 by belfastdavid

This year, for my enjoyment over the holiday, I shall be re-reading –

The Modesty Blaise books by Peter O’Donnell
without doubt the best totally escapist series of thrillers ever written.

Better than the Travis McGee series by John D MacDonald
although I have all those books too.

Different from the Matt Scudder series by Lawrence Block
the best private detective series ever written although a bit gritty for this time of year.

I shall also probably re-read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
just because I usually do.

And, of course the Alice books by Lewis Carroll. 🙂

So I might not be on the computer much

Happy Christmas to you all




Looking for Alice

“That’s the hole” I said “Just there.”
Police Constable Brown
looked at me sceptically.
“She ran in, then disappeared” I said.
He looked at me again.

Perhaps it would be best, I thought,
if I do not mention the White Rabbit.
