A Crime is Afoot Leisure Reading September 2020

leisure_reading_thumbI resume my section, long forgotten, with the summary of the books read the previous month. 

Besides, I would like to announce that, starting this month, I will no longer rate the books I read, following the example of some other fellow bloggers. I do hope my notes of the books read will suffice to provide you with the information needed to ascertain whether I have enjoyed them, as well as the different reasons why I’ve liked them.

Without further ado, last month I read and reviewed the following books:
