October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

A little off topic, but please make liberal use of my click to fund mammograms Gadget, particularly this month. My mom is a 14 year survivor, and I like to do what I can! Thanks for any that can help. It is free to click, and you can do it several times a day!

Still Plugging Along

I am almost half-way through with Crime and Punishment. I have been reading other books at the same time to break it up. Having minored in Russian in college, I do enjoy the style as I am used to it. However, I do find that with the length, I need to break it up a little bit. But, as I said, I am almost halfway through, and I am busily planning for my next trip to the library as well as planning to start Have His Carcase by Dorothy L. Sayers so that I can read Murder Must Advertise (which is actually a list book). Happy Reading!

Not a list book... but there are other good ones out there

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am trying to pinpoint why this has been my favorite, by far, of this series. Could it be that it has been so long since I have read the first two, that I have fallen in love with the series again? Could it be that the focus was much more on the case than on the relationship between Russell and Holmes (which, frankly, I still have trouble believing the romantic aspect of)? In the end, all I can say was that I had a hard time putting this book down. I literally carried it with me everywhere. I found it to be fascinating and back to true detection. I highly recommend it!
