Sex and Crime in the Library. Well, that's MY day sorted.

A 91 year old Scottish woman is the most prolific library book reader in Britain. At 91 she's still reading Mills and Boon. I'm quite relieved to hear that romance is still important at that age. Good on her.

And in other library news, Kate Atkinson's WHEN WILL THERE BE GOOD NEWS is one of the most borrowed library books in York. And three of the top four are crime fiction. Excellent.

The lovely Bill Crider reviews Allan Guthrie's KILLING MUM.

Publishers Weekly talks to Stuart MacBride.

'Robert Downey Jr, who plays Holmes, has revealed the crimebuster will sleep with and have sweaty grappling scenes with Watson, played by Jude Law, in "Sherlock Holmes," due out Christmas Day. "We're two men who happen to be roommates, wrestle a lot and share a bed. It's bad-ass," Downey told Britain's News of the World. Added much-in-the-news Law: "Guy wanted to make this about the relationship between Watson and Holmes. They're both mean and complicated."'
