Now, what will I be reading from?

  • Le Regard du Ressuscité, by Archimandrite Gabriel – a French book on Orthodox icons, received for review

  • My Cousin Rachel, by Daphne du Maurier – for The Classics Club

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

  • The Novel of the Century: The Extraordinary Adventure of Les Missérables, by David Bellos

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 Sherlock Holmes Book, by DK Publishing

  • A Curious Coillection of Dates: Through the Year with Sherlock Holmes, by Leah Guinn

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!
