Yes — all of them, I think. Just got a new one, in fact, but haven’t begun it yet.

Why do you ask?

I have just got the new one "Blue Shoes ???" and have read them all - this kind of book is not usually my style of book at all - but found them "engaging" and have a friend who lived in Botswana near to the town and says its exactly like it. I just wondered whether it had travelled accross the pond

Yes!!! How funny - I just mentioned in another thread around here somewhere that I have been completely engrossed in this series. I am now in the middle of The Full Cupboard of Life. I just love the characters Alexander McCall Smith has created - I feel I know them, and also quite a bit about the flavor of life in Botswana. I have always wanted to go to Africa and have now moved Botswana further up the list of countries I'd like to visit.
