It’s been a delightful morning, reading for th Dewey’s 24 hour Readathon. It took me a while to get started, as my eyes were just not focusing because of allergies. And with the husband underfoot, there were distractions aplenty.
But as we come into hour 5, I finished the first book- The Woman Who Walked In Sunshine by Alexander McCall Smith. This is a part of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, which I love. It’s light and fun but the colloquialisms make it that you want to slow down and enjoy it a bit more. Which is the antithesis of what you want when you are trying to read for speed. But even my husband remarked about how I kept laughing and giggling as I was reading.
This book is highly recommended for anyone who likes a good cozy mystery, anyone who is interested in the culture of Southern Africa, or anyone who wants a light and enjoyable series to follow that spends equal time with characters and setting.
