It's a mystery-lovers bonanza: Gilman, Christie, Rinehart, Gardner, Stout - and that plain brown book underneath is Westlake. Throw in a copy of A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines and a collection of Christmas stories and it's a pretty good haul.
C.S. Lewis once said, "It is a good rule, after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between." I intend to try to follow that rule in the coming year.
