The Bibliophile Files - June 2014

This has been another slow reading month for me.  You can tell my kids are home.  I spend a bunch of time chatting to them - which is how it should be.  All too soon, they will head back to school and I will have too much time on my hands.  So last months offerings are.....
Friends, Lovers, Chocolate by Alexander McCall Smith.  Another in the Isabelle Dalhousie Series.  I am addicted to Alexander McCall Smith.  Such an insightful author.  He has a real understanding of people and how they think.  I think I have read 16 of his books and there is not one that I have not enjoyed.
 Another Isabelle Dalhousie book.  They are just wonderful.  She is a philosopher and her thinking is both pertinent to real life and a little funny too.  If you are looking for a book that will make you feel warm inside, I highly recommend these.
I am linking up with Sarah at  Check out the linky party for some good read suggestions.


  1. Hmm...both sound very interesting and I'm not sure that I've ever read anything by this author. Will need to check out Alexander McCall Smith...

  2. I am sure you will enjoy to go to Edinburgh! I saw that the Isabel Dalhousie histories is from Edinburgh, then you may know some of the town from the books. I can't find that his books about Isabel Dalhousie are translated to Norwegian. We have " The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Series" about Precious Ramotswe in Botswana.

  3. And about the Haggis, You see I am an adventurous and brave woman LOL
