For our first meeting of 2007, we eased back into things with another British series detective. In this case, it's M.C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth, sleuth in twenty-two novels so far. Rather than select a specific title in this series, we encouraged all the Just Desserts participants to select any one or more of the Hamish Macbeth books to read. We then held a general discussion of the series as a whole when we met on the last Thursday of January, 2007.
The 22 volumes of M.C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series are available in a variety of formats, including: Hardback, Paperback, downloadable audio files, Book-on-Tape, Book-on-CD and even a few on Large Type editions. In addition, the first two seasons of the 3-season British television series based on the books [1995-1997] are also available on DVD in the library's collections: Series One | Series Two
The Hamish Macbeth series was discussed at the Just Desserts meeting on January 25, 2007. We encourage you to share your own thoughts and opinions about these book in a reply comment to this blog post, below!
