Haunted House Mini-Edition - Jan Pieńkowski
Haunted House Mini-Edition - Jan Pieńkowski

Just as I have Christmas books that I break out and read every year in November and December, I have this one book that I read every year as part of my All Hallow's Read/Halloween Bingo/spoopy-months celebration (spooky-adjacent sorts of things that aren't scary but are amusing).


This is something I picked up lo! these many years ago, because of course part of the Halloween observance is giving seasonally-appropriate books. They lost interest in it ages ago, but the mix of expected (skeleton in the closet) and unexpected (octopus washing dishes) still it delights me every year. And amazingly, hardly any of the moving bits came off or tore. Some of my September and October reads are re-reads, but the only other piece I return to very often is Click-Clack the Rattlebag, the audio version read by Neil Himself.

Reading progress update: I've read 153 out of 240 pages.
Bats in the Belfry - E.C.R. Lorac




I'm just not feeling this one but I'm too far in to abandon the book. And I do want to collect the full amount for the BL-Opoly square.


I'll probably finish this tomorrow, but right now I need another book. Any other book.

Elizabeth’s eyes grew as round as saucers; with her hat in her hand, and her red curls rumpled up like a baby’s, she looked as angelic as a modern young woman could look, with her lips pursed like a Raphael cherub.

“A corpse, in the Belfry? But Bobbie, who corpsed him?”

“I don’t know, bambina, and the cops don’t know either. Old Neil rang me up just now, simply bleating… I know, the blighter!”

A light of comprehension dawned in his eyes.

“That blinking Macdonald told Neil R. not to let me know anything. Confound him! He’ll be trying to tie the beastly unknown round my neck, like an albatross. He took my finger-prints, and now he’ll say he found ’em plastered all over the Belfry, and run me in for doing an anonymous murder. I always said the chap looked too much like Cassius, lean and hungry, and all that.”

Gawd, these people are getting on my nerves.

Bats in the Belfry - E.C.R. Lorac

I didn't make any progress on this until I was on the flight back home last night.


It's still not looking like this will be a favourite book. 


The characters are still bumbling idiots, and now we also have a Scotland Yard Inspector who fits right in with them. 


Talking about Scotland Yard, this is new New Scotland Yard...which I happened to stroll by on Sat. And, yes, I rather liked that the surveillance camera photobombed the shot.

Reading progress update: I've read 31 out of 240 pages.
Bats in the Belfry - E.C.R. Lorac

I tried to start Bats in the Belfry ever since picking it for BL-Opoly but just couldn't get into it. Now, that I had an hour on a plane, I made some progress and am getting a serious hint of After the Funeral, with a note of Golden Age snark, and an aftertaste of some xenophobia. 


I hope this turns out to be just a first impression and there is more to it than meets the eye right now. But right now, I cannot for the life of me figure out why someone would decide to volunteer to keep an eye on a total stranger just because that person is a total stranger who's ruffled another character's feathers...and we know nothing about any reasons so far. 


Also, I have no idea how this relates to the deceased. At all. The only thing we do know about the stranger that apparently must be kept an eye on is:


1. That he reminds one of the characters of a "dago".

2. The he went to a pub.

3. That one of the characters doesn't like the look of him


So far, this is damned silly but one of the women characters is quite snarky and I am interested to see what part she'll play in this story.
