Reading progress update: I've read 80 out of 289 pages.
Field of Thirteen - Dick Francis

Reading this for the 24 Festive Tasks Melbourne Cup Day square: A set of 13 short stories set in the world of horse racing.  One of them (Blind Chance) I recently read, under a different title (Twenty-one Good Men and True), as part of the Verdict of Thirteen anthology for the Halloween Bingo "13" square and won't be rereading it.  The others are new to me, though, and so far very enjoyable.

24 Festive Tasks: Door 1 - Día de los Muertos, Book
Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories - Agatha Christie,Joan Hickson,Isla Blair,Anna Massey
Miss Marple: The Complete Short Stories - Agatha Christie

Audio revisit courtesy of Joan Hickson (who reads almost all of the stories), as well as Isla Blair and Anna Massey (who read one story each). Original review of the print edition HERE

 

The audio is excellent and contains an extra (and somewhat sinister) "non-Miss-Marple" story, The Dressmaker's Doll -- the story narrated by Anna Massey -- which was first published in book form in Double Sin and Other Stories (U.S., 1961) and in Miss Marple's Final Cases (UK, 1979); the story of a doll that mysteriously appears one day in a dressmaker's shop and slowly seems to want to take it over.
