I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Sherlock Holmes Challenge

Sherlock Holmes
Reading Challenge

The idea is to read ALL of Sherlock Holmes in chronological order. That's right, 56 short stories and 4 novels.

The pace will be a week per short story and 3 weeks for each novel but other schedules are allowed. The order to follow can be found here, with few changes.

So, since I do own The Complete Sherlock Holmes, I thought I'd give this a try. The sad thing that as it's all one book, I can't count it until it's finished and if I don't finish it in one year, it doesn't count at all. Not a problem, it's just one book right? Yeah, and 1,874  pages! Well, I'll may count the stories that have their own ISBN for other challenges.

I guess I'll be writing down the titles as I finish them. It's a start
