Are we supposed to vote on the April feature? I'm tempted to suggest an April Fool theme but it's April 2 now so I'll behave.

I don't think I've read any Shakespeare mysteries, so that might be interesting. No wait, I did read a Ngaio Marsh mystery about a glove that had Shakespearean connections. Can't remember what it was called.

I think I'll give my vote to that one. I'm getting sick of quarantine, not sure I want to read books about it.

I've read all of Tana French's books.  I especially liked The Witch Elm and Faithful Place. I've never been to Ireland but it would be fun to visit if I ever strike it rich.

I also like Nora Roberts, especially her Irish books. I like Josephine Tey's books with the detective Alan Grant. I remember I liked The Singing Sands a lot.

Here's my favorite Sherlock Holmes joke. What have you got? Post 'em here!

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. As they lay down for the night, Holmes said: "Watson, look up into the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson said, "I see millions and millions of stars."

“And what does that tell you?" Holmes asked.

"Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Theologically, it tells me that God is great and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow... What does it tell you?"

"Somebody stole our tent, " said Holmes.

Elementary! I found this joke online:

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson was taking the train one day when they passed a huge flock of sheep in a field. As quickly as they had observed the fluffy cloud it had passed out of view.

"So many sheep!" Watson exclaimed. "I wonder how many there were?"

"Elementary, Dear Watson. There were 167 sheep." Sherlock calmly stated.

"Holmes, are you really telling me you managed to count them all in that brief moment?" Watson inquired.

"Don't be silly, Watson. I counted the legs and divided by four."

Here's where I found it:

Knives Out is available to rent on Apple TV right now for $6.00. Also on Youtube for $6.00.

I loved this, especially Daniel Craig. Love him as Bond, too.

I have a book case in my room and in the living room. Plus a couple of shelves in one of the spare bedrooms.

They are generally organized solely by the authors I want to have on the shelves. They aren't alphabetized by authors but whichever ones are on a shelf see all the books in order of publication.

The shelves in the living room contain some of my mom and dad's books, but I'm slowly weeding those out. As I empty a shelf, I pick an author to dedicate a shelf for their work.

I don't have a designated reading area in terms of decking out a room or anything. I do most of my reading either sitting on the couch in the living room or laying on my bed.

I read in bed a lot, too. I'd love to get an old-fashioned leather comfy reading chair one day.

Hi! I'm looking for ways to keep communication lines open while I'm cooped up for the foreseeable future. I'm healthy right now except for allergies.

Reading lots of mysteries these days. I just finished Face of a Killer by Robin Burcell. Right now I'm reading Thunderstruck by Erik Larson.

I'm looking forward to your recommendations.
