In other news, I'll explain the pile and my reading ennui shortly, but for now, I want to read just about every book featured in the Mysterious Bookshop's latest post. Intrigue in Tudor England, life and death in the Hapsburg Empire, and a pulp fiction writer in a concentration camp? Sign me up!
Finally, I really hope that The Big Book of Christmas Mysteries appears in my house, perhaps as a Saint Nicholas Day gift so that I can enjoy it all month. But maybe Black Peter can stay at home.
