Between novels, I worked these in from The Thinking Machine: Fifty Novelettes & Short Stories by Jacques Futrelle. If this looks familiar, yes, I’ve been working my way through this for months, a few at a time.
”Problem of the Cross Mark”
”Problem of the Crystal Gazer”
”Problem of the Deserted House”
”Problem of the Ghost Woman”
Any of them outstanding?
That’s because there are a …ahem… lot of stories. Now came up to “The Problem of Cell 13” but there were other good ones.
“None” rather than now
I think a few others are as good as “Problem of Cell 13”, but I have enjoyed almost all of them. Reading only a few at a time works best.
As far as I know I have not read any stories by Futrelle. I suppose I should find an inexpensive kindle edition and sample the stories.
I found one with lots of his stories, bought it and will try it soon.
I saw your comment at Patti’s about high temperatures today and tomorrow. Hope the visit to the doctor goes well in all respects.
It was 99.7 at 2:30, which was the last time I checked. Supposed to get to 101 today, hotter tomorrow. Dr. Visit went just fine, thanks.
I thought of you last night when we had another hour or so of thunderstorms with torrential downpours. Good thing there’s no such thing as climate change, right?
Right! Heh. I’m about to hop over to Lesa’s and leave my Thursday reading post there.
I have this book but find it hard to hold because of its size. I have to read it at a table which isn’t the most comfortable situation. I may switch to the ebook version so I can read it on my iPad.
That’s how I read it, George. Same with Otto’s giant collections of old stories. The books are just too big and too heavy!
Jeff you’re absolutely right!
I sit it on my tummy to read it, or on the flat arm of a chair and lean. This is definitely a candidate for ebook.
