1. Audio and ebook, I do physical books sometimes but they exacerbate chronic pain in my hands so it‘s a rare treat

2. Southwark library or the kindle store

3. Yes they‘re most of my reading. They‘re a godsend for readers with some disabilities im very lucky to have access! There are years of my life where I couldn‘t have read at all

4. Library audio mostly. I had to cancel audible recently for money reasons

3. No

I've tried reading a few bookclub books but just couldn't get onto them right now. So I'm going back to James Rollins who I always enjoy.

TheBookAddict That looks yummy 🤤 😋 1d
robinb Yummm, I‘ll be right over! 🤣 24h
bookandbedandtea Oooh I read 6 or 7 James Rollins then kinda forgot about them (I think while waiting for the next at that time to release) so I appreciate the reminder! I'd love to catch back up with the folks of Sigma Force. 😊 23h

Death on the Nile (Poirot) | Agatha Christie

I know there is LOADS of love for Dame Agatha and especially Mr. Poirot, but I‘m just not amongst the fans. I find the humor stale and the characterization shallow. It‘s just a case of #ItsMeNotYou #DontRevokeMyLitsyLicense

julesG I like the films more than the books. 3d
CarolynM I read a lot of Agatha Christie in my early teens and liked them then, but I suspect I'd feel like you if I read them now. 3d
TrishB I love a good crime novel, but never liked Christie! 3d

Cinfhen Oh good!! I‘m in GREAT company @TrishB @CarolynM @julesG I think the films are campy and that works well 3d
laurenslibrary I'm not a huge fan, either. She's not for everyone. 3d
TheAromaofBooks She isn't for everyone, and I also think that there is a wide range of quality among her books. Personally, I think the plotting is much tighter in her earlier books, while many of the later Poirot novels are a bit sloppy. I remember thinking that this was definitely one her more meh books - I thought it was an interesting choice to turn into a film this year. 3d
Scochrane26 I haven‘t read this one yet, but I loved the movie of Murder on the Orient Express a few yrs ago, so I want to see this movie. 3d
Cinfhen I‘m so happy to know others feel similarly about these books @laurenslibrary @TheAromaofBooks @Scochrane26 I thought I might be accused of blasphemy 🤭 3d
Scochrane26 @Cinfhen I do love some of her books, but I haven‘t really gotten too far into them yet. I‘ve read maybe 8-10 so far. I‘ll read Death on the Nile before the movie. I like the cast for the movie & enjoy Kenneth Branagh‘s mustache. 3d
Cinfhen Kennith Branagh makes a GREAT Poirot @Scochrane26 3d
lele1432 I loved Murder on the Orient Express (on audio narrated by Kenneth Branagh) but haven‘t read the other Poirot books. I read the Three Blind Mice story and hated it lol. I don‘t have much interest in the Miss Marple series except a couple. (edited) 3d
CafeMom I am reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd which I think is Mr. Poirot's introduction. I am only 50 pages in but it hasn't grabbed me yet. I am glad that I am not alone. 3d
Cinfhen So nice to see others feel similarly @CafeMom @lele1432 I thought I was all alone in the Litsy corner 3d

Final hour! Enjoying the narrator but I‘m 99% sure I solved the crime within moments of the murder. I‘ve decided British crime busters just aren‘t my thing 😜 I do think the new movie adaptation will be great fun & @KarenUK swears the 1978 film is brilliant 🍿

JenlovesJT47 The 1978 movie is awesome! 4d
Cinfhen Maybe I can dig it up somewhere @JenlovesJT47 I‘d like to watch the film/ what an all star cast🤩 3d

These were the chosen books for our #LitsyATXReadersSociety meeting today. This month‘s topic was: something read by someone else in the club last year 😊. The tagged title has rave reviews from three club members now, so it‘s added to my TBR!

I‘m tagging the other books in the comments ❤️📚
