#3 -- "The Complete Sherlock Holmes, volume 1" by Arthur Conan Doyle
I haven't read ol' Sherlock since I was a kid, and this was really ripping good fun. I dragged it out after encouraging my friend the recent London transplant to read it. Good stuff, and apt on our recent miserable rainy days.
And it was a needed easy warmup before the big task: "Against the Day" is next. I'm reading it in conjunction with a friend (under the theory that the buddy system will drive us forward). Should be interesting.
