What I Am Reading
I have just begun reading Alexander McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies´ Detective Agency. Meet the detective, Mma Ramotswe:
“Mma Ramotswe had a detective agency in Africa, at the foot of Kgale Hill. These were its assets: a tiny white van, two desks, two chairs, a telephone, and an old typewriter. Then there was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe – the only lady private detective in Botswana – brewed redbush tea. And three mugs – one for herself, one for her secretary, and one for the client. What else does a detective agency really need? Detective agencies rely on human intuition and intelligence, both of which Mma Ramotswe had in abundance. No inventory would ever include those, of course.”
To be reviewed. When? As soon as I have had time to finish the charming cozy mystery.
