The Complete Father Brown Mysteries by G. K. Chesterton - BOOK BEGINNINGS

Merry Christmas!


For those of you blogging on Christmas, we are her to chare the first sentence or so of the book we are reading, for Book Beginnings on Fridays, even though this Friday falls on Christmas Day. 

Like many of you probably did, I scheduled my post to post automatically, so I suspect there will be fewer links this week. But I will try to get around to visit all of you this weekend. Feel free to post your link whenever you get around to it. If you share on social media, please use the #bookbeginnings hashtag.


I wanted to read something cozy this Christmas week, so I dove into my Father Brown omnibus, The Complete Father Brown Mysteries by G. K. Chesterton. I love them! I've seen a few television adaptations over the years, not many, but I have never read the books. 

Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Harwich: and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous; nor wished to be. 
-- from the first story, "The Blue Cross," in the first book in the omnibus, The Innocence of Father Brown

Freda at Freda's Voice hosts another teaser event on Fridays. Participants share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of the book they are reading -- or from 56% of the way through the audiobook or ebook. Please visit Freda's Voice for details and to leave a link to your post.

Why should the gentlemen look at a chance waiter? Why should the waiters suspect a first-rate walking gentleman?
-- from "The Queer Fleet," which despite its title is not an LGBQT story since it was first published in 1910. 

Enjoy these holiday weeks! I'll see you next week for the first Book Beginnings on Fridays of 2021!


  1. I love the look and sound of this one!

  2. I haven't read this series but I've heard many good things about it. Merry Christmas!

  3. On the off chance that you have pets, something to be thankful for to think about the gel-filled kitchen floor mats is that they are truly tough. The mats are sufficiently sturdy with the goal that you can utilize them consistently, yet they are likewise delicate enough to soothe any agony in your feet or legs from remaining in one position throughout the day. Despite the fact that the gel-filled mats are delicate, most pets can't wreck them.
