In this new feature to the blog, I will be posting brief book reviews on books that can be loosely (in some cases, extremely) linked to knitting. Why not, right? Everyone enjoys a good read…especially when we can related in some way. Please keep in mind that, though I love to read, I am not a book worm. I enjoy it when it is enjoyable. I like reading entertaining books and am not an intellectual book snob. This is not a place for me to list my literary conquests, so please expect some fluff reading to be mentioned.
For the first book, I would like to introduce you to one of my favorites. Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann.
“A witty philosophical murder mystery with a charming twist: the crack detectives are sheep determined to discover who killed their beloved shepherd.”
This story introduces you to a flock of merino sheep that are far more savvy then one would assume due to the strong literary background they have developed thanks to their loving, book sharing shepherd. However, when the shepherd is discovered affixed to the ground with a garden spade, they must use their newly developed wit to help solve the murder.
