Mailbox Monday/It's Monday! What are you reading?

A Murder Is Announced (Miss Marple, #5)             21155902     

I love Agatha Christie. I think I read this about twenty years ago but it is just as delightful today. The second book was a recommendation from Fleur Fisher. I get absolutely amazing recommendations from this blogger. Both books are courtesy of Open Library.

Nothing  new from Netgalley. So many geographical restrictions put me completely out of the circuit!

Two wins from Simon from Stuck in a book. The books take a circuitous route via London to Sri Lanka via a friend of mine who does not mind picking up my wins. I only enter for the UK prize books when I really, really want to get my hands on a particular book. These two were 

Media of Mrs Harris MP          Mrs. Harris Goes To Moscow          


I am reading The Siege as well as A Wreath for the Enemy. 

Monday was a holiday - a full moon poya day and I was out of Colombo. Hence the post got so late. 
Its been all systems go from early this Tuesday morning!


  1. Geographic restrictions can be such a pain!

    I hope you enjoy whatever you do read this week!

  2. Congratulations on the great win! Mrs. Harris sounds intriguing!

  3. My husband is crazy for Agatha. I really don't know much about her. I must try her some time.

  4. Nice assortment of books, Mystica. Hope you enjoy them all!

  5. Mystica, it's good to see someone is still reading Paul Gallico. I have read his "Flowers for Mrs. Harris" and "Scruffy," the latter being a fascinating tale about a particular macaque monkey, and his kind, who annoy and terrorise everyone on the Rock of Gibraltar which is under British occupation during the conflict with Spain. Gallico is a smooth writer.

  6. I'm curious about A Wreath for the Enemy based on the cover. Happy reading!

  7. A Murder is Announced is such a good book.
