Reading list, January 2005

What I read in January:

Books

Hello Kitty : The Remarkable Story of Sanrio and the Billion Dollar Feline Phenomenon by Ken Belson, Brian Bremner (amazon)

The Murder Room by P.D. James (amazon)
Here’s a great first sentence:
“On Friday 25 October, exactly one week before the first body was discovered at the Dupayne Museum, Adam Dalgliesh visited the museum for the first time.”

I don’t read murder mysteries habitually, but I do enjoy them from time to time and there is a nice familiar feeling about visiting a detective whose previous adventures I’ve read before. P.D. James books have a comfortable and melancholy feel.

Wrapt in Crystal by Sharon Shinn (amazon)

Annotated Grimm’s Fairy Tales (amazon)
— I’m around halfway through this, and it is great.
