SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Reading progress update: I've read 11% of Hound of the Baskervilles.

The Hound of the Baskervilles -  Arthur Conan Doyle

Well, it's been many years since I've read this - at least a decade - so it's almost a case of "read it again for the first time."  (I know that I've read it, as I've read all of the Holmes canon at least once.)


Last night I left off with the sight of the paw prints of a massive hound on the moor, and Sherlock Holmes suddenly excited.  It's good to be back at 221B Baker Street, with the game afoot.
