Manderley Forever, by Tatiana de Rosnay – Daphne’s biography, received for review thru Netgalley

and from books I read a few pages every day:
The Typikon Decoded, by Archimandrite Job Getcha – Orthodox Liturgics
Paradise Lost, by Milton – for The Classics Club

The two latest books I read in connection with my audiobook project of listening to all of Sherlock Holmes. So during Bout of Books I will listen to The Hounds of the Baskervilles and his following work: The Return of Sherlock Holmes
If I have finished some of the above before the beginning of BOB, I will edit the list the day before
My challenge will be to read 525 pages (average of 75 pages/day).
Not counting some time for audiobooks as well.
And I will organize a giveaway!
