People talk about reading on the beach, it's true, but for us winter has always been the real season for fun, junky books. A warm mug of tea or cocoa, a window looking out at the rain? Perfection. The Labors of Hercules is, for some reason, our favorite Agatha Christie book, even though by no means is it one of her most popular. As you might have guessed from the title, it's a series of very loosely connected short stories featuring Hercule Poirot and mirroring the classical Hercules myths. Perhaps our favorite part of it is recurring character Amy Carnaby - finish "The Nemean Lion" and you'll know why. Used copies can be had for as little as eighty-one cents.
