Her books were instrumental in developing and deepening my love for murder mysteries – an obsession that plagues and delights me still. So I knew I had found a treasure. I’ve read this book three times and on each occasion, I learned something new. I intend to read it again because surely there must be more gems of information and inspiration waiting to be discovered.
Today, in my copy of the What’s New In Freelance Writing newsletter, I followed the link to The Writing Style of Agatha Christie. I lapped up this short piece and plan to print it and attach it to the inside front cover of my cherished book.
Like many other voracious readers and passionate writers I am intrigued by modern technology. I have countless digital books on my E-Reader and PC Tablet but I don’t read them as readily as I read the dozens of print books I buy every year.
A confession: Sometimes I buy both the digital and print versions of a book.
Whole Latte Life by my friend Joanne DeMaio is one example. And I have no doubt I will do the same with her second book – Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans, which is due to be published next month – March 11th to be exact.
Print books will never lose their tactile and sentimental appeal – not to me. My copy of Agatha Christie – An Autobigraphy is a treasure of deep sentimental value. Oh yes, and I also love the tattered book jacket.
