Here are the books I finish and foresee reading, for my theme, Gentle Spectrums 2018! This is the review page with everyone’s links to have fun browsing (when I make it). Here are my books for my group last year. Please join all of my themes.
I am excited about brainstorming a lot of great new topics and beneficial ways to expand the ones we are reprising. I hope everyone is as pleased with them as I am. This logo is not my photograph, like the gorgeous Manitoba marsh vista last year but I hope everyone derives peace and happy thoughts from its beauty. I really like it.
Please visit for review links as I finish. Below them are drafts I make of books that fit, which I have queued. My selections go by my moods and I constantly score fresh book bargains, which is important when one reads nearly all physical literature. However I normally read the ones I list for myself soon. Goodness knows we are blessed with good stock.

(11) THIRD TIME CHARM?
“Poirot Investigates” Agatha Christie 1924
I disliked this third Hercule Poirot novel! I liked the character before and after a break, am sure of liking him anew. I think it is especially the short story format that brought low regard. I am not a short story fan and there were poor standards in the attempt to apply these ones as “you solve the mystery” exercises.
