The last seven stories were all from the Holmes anthology. I’m not reading the variety of collections and anthologies I had expected, instead sticking to a few that I’m enjoying. I’ll get to the others in time. My favorites this week were the Anthony Berkeley and Paul Finch stories.
I also read From Doon with Death (1964), the first Chief Inspector Reginald Wexford novel by Ruth Rendell, which I enjoyed. Note I read it for a Rendell single-author Friday Forgotten Books post on March 4th.
She also listened to two audiobooks, a first for her, Hour Game by David Baldacci and Worth Dying For by Lee Child, a Reacher novel. She liked listening to audiobooks (they were from the library), but because they were in the iPad, she said she felt tethered. That shouldn’t be a problem once we get her phone set up for audiobooks.
