I think my Summer of Sherlock is just about done

Conan Doyle: Man Who Created Sherlock Holmes. - Andrew Lycett European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman (The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club) - Theodora Goss A Letter of Mary - Laurie R. King

 

At this point, I'm about half way through Andrew Lycett's biography of Arthur Conan Doyle.  I have to say, ACD is not nearly as interesting as Ian Fleming was.  He seems to have been rather a stick in the mud, despite all his odd spiritual beliefs.

 

I think I will also read the second book by Theodora Goss and the third book in the Mary Russell series, and then I am declaring the Summer of Sherlock to be done.

 

By then, it should be time for Hallowe'en Bingo to get going, and I hope to seamlessly roll into that event.

 

I'm kind of sad that summer is over so quickly, but I do love fall.  

 

Happy reading!
