Anthony Horowitz’s Magpie Murders

Pg. 36: “He sucked in smoke, holding the cigarette cupped in his hand, like a soldier in an old film.”

Pg. 38: “There was a shelf of reference books: the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (two volumes), Roget’s Thesaurus, the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, Brewer’s Book of Phrase and Fable . . . .”

Pg. 68: “I had devoted my whole life to books, to bookshops, to booksellers, to bookish people like Charles and Alan. And in doing so, I had ended up like a book: on the shelf.”
