A Rankling....

As I posted last night, I was rather excited to jump into bed early to read the latest Ian Rankin I had downloaded - a bargain at $6.99!

However, as I was reading the first short story, I started to think that it had a familiar ring to it. Undeterred, I continued to read when, well into the second short story, I realized that it too seemed oddly familiar.

*SIGH*

Yes, it is true. I had already downloaded the whole book some months ago - different cover, same book. I did enjoy it (as always) but apparently didn't remember it very well.

*SIGH*

Darn it. Now to find and pay for one I haven't read...

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. How annoying to have already read the book, and the money spent, again 

Thank you Eliza! I opted to start reading another book for now, "The Year She Fell," by Alicia Rasley. It was a free book rated at 4/5 Stars so I thought it was worth a look!

Clearly the little chaps in your head had been goofing off again...!

Hello! Thank you for your comment on my blog. It's great to be back. Glad to see you are an Ian Rankin fan! He lives quite close to me in Edinburgh, and is often to be spotted in the local Starbucks. I am always tempted to dash over to him and gush about his books, but then I think, he just wants to be left along to enjoy his coffee! Our Edinburgh literati - JK Rowling and Alistair McCall Smith are also sometimes to be spotted in the same starbucks!
