Library Loot: December

Needing to get a “workout” in for GymPact, I walked up to Balham library and back a few days ago (30 mins each way as a brisk walk… in light drizzle…) listening to:

The police are nowhere near solving Sora’s murder, Lilian is being a crazy lady, and Anders and Agnes are now going to have to deal with the unwanted pregnancy and wedding (oh, back in the 1920s).

Balham library is lovely – not as beautiful a building as Tooting, my local, but better stocked and organised, I felt. More 30 minute walks up there in future, I think!

  3. […] right now: The Hangman’s Holiday by Dorothy L. Sayers – having picked it up at the library after Alex recommended Ms. Sayers. I’m really enjoying it – much more than I […]
