Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

History, Crime and Limericks

Crime Rhymes: From Bad to Verse - Dixie J Whitted

This was such a fun read. There were times I had to read the limericks out loud so that my husband (who was driving the car to KY again) could hear it. My middle child sat in the back groaning at the puns in the limerick. It had limericks on Holmes and Watson. It had a whole section on Lizzy Borden. There was even a little short story on the Borden murders and Sherlock Holmes and Watson came to solve it. Highly recommend this book. 




What is that lugubrious sound?

Some weird Baskervillian Hound?

People shudder and moan

At its uncanny groan—

It’s only Holmes, fiddling around."
