The Week in Books: July 13 – July 19

It was not a good week for a variety of reasons, not least the tenth anniversary of the death of my darling grandpa. And the reading list reflects the awful, which really hit my concentration and my reading time. Hey ho. Surely 2020 can’t get any worse?!

Not a Creature was Stirring by Christina Freeburn

Calamity at Harwood by George Bellairs

Still not counting, and feeling even less bad about book purchases than I was before.
