Score!

We all know that friends are the best!  But having a friend who is also an avid reader, knows what you are reading, and keeps an eye out for you is the absolute best! Last Friday as I was getting ready to leave for the weekend, my friend Barb called and said she was working at her church rummage sale. Among the books were a number of the Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency series, and would I like her to get them for me? "Well Yes, absolutely." So look at what I now have on my shelf - 1 through 12 except for 2 and 11. I know our local library has #2, and no doubt they have #11 as well. She picked up 7 books for me, for the whopping sum of $5.00! What a score! How lucky am I?! Thanks Barb! So if any of my local reading friends are interested in this series, you know Linda's Library is open!!   :)

Peace,
Linda

Wow! That is a great find!

I love those stories! There was a TV series made too - the characters seemed to jump right off the pages of the books.

I love rummaging for books at op shops and sales. But I must say I don't like that series! LOL My favourite genre is who dun its. And a fav author is Elizabeth George.

How wonderful! My husband and I both have read most of these and loved them all! I wish they had made more of the movies too. Such good characters and interesting mysteries. The movies really show the beauty of Africa too. Enjoy your weekend! Happy reading! Hugs, Diane

Nice, and how fortuitous that your friend found the collection and remembered you.
