It's Monday! What Are you Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. And I really enjoyed taking part in it. And then life happened and somehow I lost blogging hours somewhere and managed to get off track with all my memes. Every week I kept thinking...Next week I'll start off on Monday with my memes and get going again.  Well, here I am....finally!

Books Read Last Week (click on titles for review): 
The Clue of the Leather Noose by Donald Bayne Hobart
The Coral Princess Murders by Frances Crane 
Decoded by Mai Jia 
After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman

Currently Reading: 
A Hangman's Dozen by Alfred Hitchcock (ed): A collection of short stories by mystery and suspense story stars such as Evan Hunter, Ray Bradbury, Donald Westlake, and Jonathan Craig. You could call this Hitchcock's How-to Book. It includes instructions on the following:
*How to solve your marital problems (poison)
*How to dress properly when admitting to first degree murder (black tie)
*How to take off a few pounds fast (a knife)
*How to ruin a perfect friendship (a homemade bomb)

And many, many other helpful hints from the specialists.
Books that spark my interest:
Letters from a Murderer by John Matthews 
The Mammoth Book of the Lost Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes by Denis O. Smith
Plain Sailing by Douglas Clark
By the Watchman's Clock by Leslie Ford

Your current read has me intrigued - I'm a big Alfred Hitchcock fan - so I may just have a look in to that one.
Happy Reading!

I'm a big Hitchcock fan as well, so that book intrigues me. I was just telling my Creative Writing students all about Rope today....great film!
