What I read January 2011

I've had an excellent start to the year, mainly induced I think by the fact that I was on holidays for a couple of weeks.
I've read quite a range including three Australian authors**  you should become acquainted with.

Again I had quite a bit to choose from for my pick of the month. THE BRUTAL TELLING and BAD INTENTIONS were both outstanding contenders, but the winner had to be THE RULE BOOK.
  1. 4.4, IN THE TEETH OF THE EVIDENCE, Dorothy L. Sayers (31 January) - audio
  2. 4.3, DEATH ON THE NILE, Agatha Christie (31 January)
  3. 5.0, THE RULE BOOK, Rob Kitchin (30 January)
  4. 4.5, THE HALF-CHILD, Angela Savage (26 January)**
  5. 4.9, THE BRUTAL TELLING, Louise Penny (24 January)
  6. 4.7, PRIME CUT, Alan Carter (21 January)**
  7. 4.4, THE PERICLES COMMISSION, Gary Corby (16 January)**
  8. 4.5, OUR LADY OF PAIN, Elena Forbes (15 January) - audio book
  9. 4.9, BAD INTENTIONS, Karin Fossum (13 January) - kindle
  10. 4.2, OF WILD DOGS, Jane Taylor (12 January)
  11. 4.2, THE SOUNDS OF CRIME, Maxim Jakubowski (editor) - audio book (10 January)
  12. 4.5, RAILWAY TO THE GRAVE, Edward Marston (7 January)
  13. 4.4, A COTSWOLD KILLING, Rebecca Tope (6 January)
  14. 4.7, THE MAN WHO WENT UP IN SMOKE, Maj Sjowall & Per Wahloo (3 January)
  15. 4.5, DUMB WITNESS, Agatha Christie (1 January)
  16. 4.4, MAIGRET & the MAN on the BOULEVARD, Georges Simenon  (1 January)
  17. 4.5, MIDNIGHT CAB, James W. Nichol (1 January)

That's a very impressive reading list for only one month! Wish I could manage that much.

Thanks for your kind words in this post and previous ones about The Pericles Commission. It was fun to write, and it's terrific (and a relief!) to hear people like it.
