I recently forgot to bring a book for an errand (to the motor vehicle division) where I knew I was in for a long wait. There is a Little Free Library or Book Exchange at the end of the parking lot at work and I found this book by P.D. James in there. I am embarrassed to say I had not heard of her or read anything by her.
Her writing style is something new to me and I am really enjoying reading this book! Unfortunately she died a couple of years ago. She did write over 20 books in her lifetime so I will be able to continue to read her mystery novels.
“When I first heard that Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall,” she was fond of saying, “I immediately wondered: Did he fall — or was he pushed?”
Who knows how many books are sitting on shelves waiting to be read or reread. Or do you have a favorite book you want to share with others? Just place it in the free reading library! You may change someone’s life.

I love those little libraries.
Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing that moment of being supplied with a reading adventure. Usually, books are in my purse or my computer bag wherever I go. But I tend to take way too many books. And so will find myself without a book at different times.
I adore the little free libraries. Aa friend of mine has built one in a town nearby. Paul is also a writer and belongs to the redwood writers club that I provide all of your support for. I haven’t read PD James either but I love mysteries so now I have a whole new set of books to read!
A great way to find a new author!
What a wonderful fun post, thank you. I love the little free libraries.
And to be able to find a new mystery writer on a day where you were in for a long wait, reminds me of the abundant nature of Life. Needing a good read you looked around, took a short walk and enjoyed the fun of searching and finding a new book. Not only that you found in an offer that’s written 20 books, and you have introduced me to an author I do not know. I’m really looking forward to reading those mystery novels!
I am really enjoying the subtle differences between the USA and England
Hi I just tried to leave a comment three times and something about my smart phone ate them. So as to Humpty Dumpty, most likely he was shoved because of the law of inertia, things that are at rest tend to stay at rest.
Love the little free libraries. And really enjoyed your story of finding one perfectly at hand plus a new author to you. I look forward to reading her mysteries thanks for introducing her.
I’ve read a few PD James’ books, probably years ago. She was pretty good.
Someone just donated a pile of P D James books into our Little Free Library, I’m sure they’ll fly off the shelves! You can read about my Little Free Library here: https://freelandlittlefreelibrary.wordpress.com/
Thank you for stopping by!
