I actually finished my reading challenge last night (Saturday). From about ten until after midnight, I treated myself to the tenth book in Alexander McCall Smith’s #1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, Tea TIme for the Traditionally Built. It was a delight as were all the other books in the series. In this particular episode, Mma Ramotswe’s beloved white van has developed an ominous noise in the motor. Mma Makutsi’s fiance Phuti Radiphuti unknowingly hires the glamorous but predatory Violet Sephotho to work in the beds department at his Double Comfort Furniture Shop. And the local football (soccer) team may harbor a traitor who is causing the team to have a losing season. Mysteries are solved; personal problems are resolved. And The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency continues to be a haven of common sense and comfortable conversation and old Botswana tradition and custom. I love these books.
So, if you’re stopping by and you also finished Mother Reader’s Reading Challenge, leave a comment and tell me how you enjoyed it. Was it worth the effort to clear your schedule? What one book did you read that made your weekend?
