I love my cat!
I woke up last night to find him sleeping like a baby, right next to me, half under the blankets and with tummy up. He was adorable I just sat there a couple of minutes and petted him. I would’ve taken a picture but I didn’t. It was really nice and warm under the blankets and I would’ve woken him up before I would’ve reached my camera.
Yesterday I wasn’t in any mood to do anything but I wasn’t tired so I decided my mp3 player would be a good source of entertainment. I had 4 audio books on it: “The woman in black” by Susan Hill, “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt, a Sherlock Holmes novel and “Murder on the links” by Agatha Christie. A horror, a romance and two detective novels.
Since it was evening I wanted something easy but entertaining, so I picked “Murder on the links“.
Truthfully, I had no idea that this was a Poirot novel. I may be a fan of Agatha Christie but I still don’t know which books are with Miss Marple and which are with Hercule Poirot. And I don’t like looking up info on books, it takes the charm away. Yet I found this little website (I’m sure it’s one of many out there) that has a lot of info and reviews on Agatha Christie books. I’m going to keep that link just in case I get curious about her work or want to know what other books she wrote (thank God she was a prolific writer).
“Murder on the links” is full of twists and turns and once you pick it up you just have to know the ending. At some point I was wondering why the audio book was 80 minutes long because when I reached the 60 minutes mark I thought they already found the criminal. Oh, how wrong I was.
The murderer is exposed right at the end of the book, and even then the action takes place so fast you will just devour the last pages (minutes of the audio book in my case).
It was a good pick, not only did my mood improved but I sleept good the rest of the night (except the part where I woke up to pet Marlanu’).
I have now added a few more books of Agatha Christie on my mp3 player, but I would like to read “The Princess Bride” or “The Woman in Black“. We’ll see in what mood I am these next few days.
