Back Link A Special Deal

It being Sunday and a very sunny warm one at that, I want to offer you a special deal. I have in the last months bought and read two very interesting mystery series:

The Maisie Dobbs mystery series (4 paperbacks), by Jacqueline Winspear

and,

The Erast Fandorin mystery series (4 paperbacks), by Boris Akunin

The former takes place post WWI London and the later towards the end of the 19th century, in settings all over the European continent and beyond. I find the development of both protagonists many faceted and, as far as I can judge, historically authentic. I also enjoyed that all the books were interesting piece of writing in their own right.

If any one is interested in reading one of the series, please let me know and I will send you the four paperbacks by pony express. It doesn’t matter where you live, the books are light and if you are willing to wait for the package to arrive, I’d be delighted to pass them on. The only condition to the offer is you pass on the books after you have finished.

After note: Nomad Son has been sorting through his bookshelves yesterday and today. He is using the program GuruLib to aid him in this endeavour. He has just put in the first 100 books, but I think it sort of gives you a sense of why such a program might be nice to use.

really? I would love to read the Maisie Dobbs series - I have heard such good things about them, but haven't gotten around to reading them. What a treat it would be. And yes, I would most definitely pass them on.Cl

Monet, please send your snail mail address to me (virtualredtent@yahoo.com). If your email address doesn't have monet in it, please make sure to write something relevant in the subject line. I very much enjoyed the Maise Dobbs series, even though it is not my usual cup of tea. Usually, I tend towards the sassy American irreverant stuff, but Maise Dobbs is such a great character, the books read very well.

that's a very kind offer, Lia. I won't take you up on it this time though because my reading list is sky high!
