What’s On the Bookshelf? Vol. 2

What's On the Bookshelf?

Today’s book is Espresso Tales by Alexander McCall Smith, the second book in the 44 Scotland Street series. Like its predecessor, Espresso Tales is a collection of a Scotsman serial. The result? Short, bite sized bits about the people who live in the Georgian townhouse at 44 Scotland Street.

McCall Smith’s books are the perfect antidote to the doom and gloom of the outside world. The characters ring true, and the situations they get into are certainly entertaining.

I was happy to discover while reading this that Bertie, the over stressed hyper-intelligent six year old, is frequently featured in this collection.

One thought on “What’s On the Bookshelf? Vol. 2

  1. The first book of this series is wonderul-true characters in their own. Looking forward to reading this one once my daughter returns it to me.
