  1. Nice to see Rumpole on the list…sadly both Mckern and the author are now dead…great series of books…wonderful tv series too!

  2. It's the first time a bestseller-list entry has made me verklempt.

    • What's got your nose out of joint? By the way, my german wife says that
      you might want to spell verklemmt properly :)

    • Which entry, and why? Are you referring to the whole list, or one book in particular?

      • I was echoing KCM's comment. This is likely to be the last of Horace Rumpole, taken from us with his creator not quite a year ago.

        • Ah, thanks. Because you didn't reply to kcm directly, I wasn't sure whether you were responding to his comment or being cryptic.

          • It's nice to know that CC's a fan of Rumpole too. But we [ me & SWMBO] are still a little puzzled at Colby's rather odd use of verklemmt. No biggie.

  3. Ah…German.
