Sprawling Agatha Christie mystery that some classify in the spy thriller genre. It doesn’t include any of her regulars (Poirot, Marple, Tommy and Tupence). Fun read.
The second book in the Adam Dalgliesh series by P.D. James. Oh, I’ll read all of these at some point. This one takes place in a psychiatric hospital and you get to know all of the key players as the clues are released. Nice ending.
Trashy spy thriller with Pierce Brosnan that Gail and I watched to pass the time during an endless winter.
Gail and I watched this three part miniseries on Netflix. It continues our long history of liking British period pieces. I mean, why not.
This book is life-changing and altered many of my views on health and wellness. The author, a Harvard evolutionary biologist named Daniel Lieberman, was quoted extensively in Born to Run. I need to reread and document it some day soon.
This thing has run it’s course pretty much. Oh, we still watched, but it doesn’t have the same zip that it did a few years ago.

Netflix took this thing over from the BBC (or some British network) and carried on the tradition well I think. It’s the same uncomfortably twisted characters and follows the same uncomfortable story line; both of which are fine with me. Continue reading
I had no idea what to expect from this novel. I bought it years ago in Kindle format because Amazon cajoled me into it with a sale and some algorithm-based sales push. Then Gail mentioned that it was coming out in TV format and that she wanted to watch it, so my hand was forced and I cracked the book open. Continue reading
