Well, the first complete month of lockdown is behind us. I'm rather assuming that May will be another complete lockdown month but that's fine. Better indoors than six foot under, difficult and strange though it is.
Anyway, books read this month by me number seven. That's a fairly average month because books have to share my spare time with jigsaw puzzles, knitting, baking, gardening and so on.
These are the books:
25. Iron Lake - William Kent Krueger
26. The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax - Dorothy Gilman
27. The Malice of Waves - Mark Douglas-Home
28. Pole too Pole - Michael Palin
29. The Provincial Lady Goes Further - E.M. Delafield
30. A Share in Death - Deborah Crombie (to be reviewed, very good book)
31. The Only Survivor - Katherine Pathak (to be reviewed, very good book)
Goodness, I really did major on the crime fic this month... five out of seven were murder mysteries! No apologies for that though, they were all excellent reads, three being the start of new series and two continuing on with series already started. Only one non-fiction this month but am halfway through another which will count for May.
I did what I often do and picked out a few books for May. Sometimes these books get read, sometimes they don't. I tend to be happy if I get two or three off the pile as I can change my mind within two or three days about what I fancy reading! But these are the books that appeal at the moment.

And I mentioned that I've also been doing jigsaws, here're two I did this month.
This is 'Antiquity' by Giovanni Panini, 3000 pieces, puzzle by Trefl.
And this is a one thousand piece puzzle by Ravensburger, entitled Bizarre Bookshp 2 the artwork is by Colin Thompson.
I hope May is a good month for you and that you find some good books to read.
