  1. Wow, you read a lot. I read all the Agatha Christie’s some years ago and enjoyed them very much. I’m glad you give a numbered rating. I was debating about The Teashop Girls but you liked it do I may just try it. I love your “Excessively Diverting” award by the way, it’s beautiful.

  2. Wow, you sure do read alot! im 13(7th grade) and i LOVE to read! ive read alot of the agatha christie books, like in 6th and 5th grade, i am also reading sherlock holmes. i like it how you give that rating after each book you have read, thats helpful!

    1. That’s wonderful! Old mysteries like Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes were some of my favorite books when I was your age, too. You might also like the Campion series by Margery Allingham and the Lord Peter by Dorothy L. Sayers. They take place around the same time, in the 1920s-1940s, and they’re some of my favorite books.
