Charles, I had to check it out on Kindle and I have it on hold coming from Tennessee!  I think it was made into a movie staring Peter O'Toole back in the late 70s.  The library had that too.

Becky, now you read as fast as I do.  Very succinct description of my reading habits.  :)  And, I have to share that I had some ancestors that were indigo plantation owners in India.  The two sons were adventurers.  They sailed from India to England and from there one to America and the other to the Caribbean.  The one in the Caribbean was caught in an uprising and the one in America landed in New York.  He traveled up and down the eastern seaboard and ended up in Kentucky.

Nothing like a cool rainy day for staying inside and doing nothing but read! Well, almost nothing. I finished up all 3 books I was reading yesterday. Now back to work for the next four days though, so of course that will slow to a stutter. Mostly a half hour at lunch and an hour of bedtime reading is about what I manage on work days. About to start: In print--Home by Nightfall by Charles Finch (#9 Charles Lenox historical mystery). On the Kindle from the library--The Murder Road by Stephen Booth (#15 Cooper & Fry mystery.) Audio is a non mystery called The Tale of Halcyon Crane by Wendy Webb. Another library loan. I feel a need to venture out into regular contemporary fiction once in awhile. Hopefully I won't be disappointed.

Hey Cheryl --- We have much in common --- on the days the store is open and I work all day I come home so absolutely beat my goal is take a hot bath and go to bed --- reading might be 3 pages!!! 

On Kindle I am reading "A Beautiful Blue Death" by Charles Finch.  It is the first in the Charles Lenox series.  Thus far I am enjoying it.  In paper I am reading "The Dead Woman of Deptford" by Ann Granger.  It is one in the series with Lizzie and Ben Ross.  You will be surprised to hear they are both Historical Mysteries.
