Sunday Salon: Week In Review #4

Happy Sunday! I "finished" my first reading challenge of the year, the Vintage Mystery Reading Challenge. But I have a feeling, that I won't *really* be done with it for months. I am trying to read a few books a week that are not mysteries. But it would be hard to miss this new obsession of mine!

Have you seen the new adaptations of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple novels? I've seen Murder At The Vicarage, The Body in the Library, A Murder is Announced, and 4:50 From Paddington. So far, 4:50 from Paddington is my favorite and best adaptation!
