|The TBR pile and me.|
Last week at the bookstore I hit a rich vein of luck. I bought a few children's books that I'd studiously ignored as a child and then found all the novels and stories featuring Sherlock Holmes.
My TBR pile now includes, but is not restricted to, Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Jules Verne, A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers.
I was more than a little flummoxed to find both Uncle Tom's Cabin and Dracula in the children's section, but what the hey. I'd have read them as a child if I could have found them.
I've read several Sherlock Holmes stories, but finding Sherlock Holmes The Complete Novels and Stories Volume l and ll for a ridiculously good price was a gift from the reading gods that I had more sense than to ignore.

She licked her lips and bared her teeth. A low growl escaped her throat.
