Back from Singapore

We really didn't need to buy any books but spent a very happy hour browsing the Singapore BookFest and I am happy to report that crime fiction is alive and well in Singapore.

You might also remember that I took a pile of books with me.
Sadly a couple of extras found their way into the travel bag, and wormed their way into my attention. I read
A HOLLY, JOLLY MURDER, Joan Hess
A MAN LAY DEAD, Ngaio Marsh
THE MAN IN THE BROWN SUIT, Agatha Christie

I made good headway in THE 19TH WIFE by David Ebershoff but I am not sure whether I'll get it finished for this weekend's discussion. It does require some seriously attentive reading. I've also begun MYSTERIOUS PLEASURES edited by Martin Edwards which is a collection of very enjoyable short stories. But I was a little ambitious this time in how much reading I was going to get done, and some books came back untouched.

We got back this morning after an overnight flight.

Welcome back. How utterly exotic to go to Singapore. But then I guess it ain't exactly as far from your place as it is from mine ;-) I have never been to Asia (or Australia for that matter). I have gone West when I have gone far away instead. I went to a book convention myself this past weekend http://louspages.blogspot.com/2008/11/national-blog-posting-month-16-so-many.html
