And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Holiday Horror

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie.  Ten people are invited as guests or hired help on Indian Island, off the British Coast.  As they are all assembled after their arrival a voice suddenly announces that they are charged with murder indictments and the voice proceeds to list each of their victims. At this point they realize they are stranded on the island in the hands of a yet-unseen, mysterious and obviously “dangerous and probably insane” host.  This isn’t the vacation they signed up for.  They’re ready to leave.  Unfortunately the boat that delivered them has left and won’t return until the following day. 

One person quickly winds up dead, and the group chalks it up to suicide, but then another person is found dead, and then another. It takes a bit before they realize how a poem about ten little Indians is directly connected to their situation. Soon they start suspecting each other all the while hoping the boat would come back.  But, no such luck.  The weather and circumstances have turned dicey.  And this is the time before cell phones, so they couldn’t contact anyone on the outside even if the weather allowed for a rescue mission to come to their aid. As the title suggests, they were sitting ducks, picked off one by one.  But how did they die and more importantly, who and how was the serial killer orchestrating their deaths?  You’ll have to read it to find out.

Happy Reading,

Fabulous New Little Free Library in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Little Free Library in Tree Stump in Coeur d’Alene, ID

Yesterday, my sister sent me a link to an article about a woman in Coeur d'Alene who turned a 100-year-old tree stump into a Little Free Library and I just had to see it for myself. The article stated that the tree was dying, rotting on the inside, so they had to have it removed. When some people have trees cut down they leave a large section to turn into wood sculptures. I love to see the works of art that are created from those stumps. 
But this stump takes the cake. Instead of a sculpture, owner and artist, Sharalee Armitage Howard, turned her tree stump into the most magnificent Little Free Library I’ve ever seen!  
The library was not yet listed on the map, so the search was on. Carefully viewing the video, I tried to narrow down where the house was located. Then I enlisted my husband’s help to search with me and we found it on the first street we turned down. It’s hard to miss.  This fabulous library is big.  It’s not just …

Little Free Libraries, Coeur d'Alene, ID Update

Take a Book, Leave a Book – Coeur d’Alene, ID Update Take a book, leave a book—that’s what the Little Free Libraries are all about—sharing books. It seems like these libraries are popping up like popcorn in Coeur d’Alene!  I just found four more. How exciting!  (Click here to see original post) 317 W. Mill Ave, Coeur d’Alene, ID.  This library is awesome and my photo doesn't do it justice.  It matches the beautiful house and the topper is that the house and library have matching whimsical pine cone rain chains hanging from them! The library has a nice selection of books, and there's a bench right next to it.  Here’s what steward, Kim, wrote about her library on the Little Free Library map locator:
Besides brushing my teeth, reading is the only thing I do every day. I have an extensive personal library and have always delighted in sharing books with others, so becoming an LFL Steward was the next right thing. My partner, Tom, and I bought and have been renovating the house in whi…
