Rainy Day Musings…

It is absolutely pouring here today… 

I’m off work, and don’t have to go anywhere.  There are things I SHOULD be doing, but, instead, I am curled up with my cup of tea (Earl Grey, hot, of course!) and a good book.  An old friend, this time.  I’m enjoying THE MUMMY CASE, by Elizabeth Peters.  One of the early Amelia Peabody Emerson novels, it is a wonderful book, full of (dare I say?) eccentric characters, and glimpses of 19th century archaeology in Egypt, with a murder mystery thrown in for good measure.  These books are always a satisfying read, fun and well-paced, and full of interesting details designed to capture and keep the reader’s attention.   Can you think of a better way to spend a rainy afternoon?

  1. Now I’m going to have to look for the book, it’s not one I know… and if it’s one of a series it’s going to cost… oh well. Blog on 🙂
