A bargain haul

We discovered a tiny little secondhand bookshop this morning and picked up a few bargains. For the modest sum of 18 euro we got seven Agatha Christie's, a Dorothy Sayers, James Lee Burke, Mark Billingham and Stephen Ambrose. Added to the existing TBR, these should keep the household quiet for a little while. I've already made a start into one of them.

Rob - You did get a nice haul there. Of course, I'm biased, but you did get some fine authors, I think.

The Christie and Sayers books are fine examples of Golden Age mysteries. Not as hard-boiled or fast-paced as Billingham, but worth reading for the crime connoisseur.
