What are you reading on Mondays? - October 12

I only finished one book this week, but that finished up two challenges. Yeah, me!

I also dropped Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street by William S. Baring-Gould after 50 pages. It was a snooze, too much of a rehash of the Holmes stories.

Recent completions:

Nana by Emile Zola -- review

Reading this week:

The Color Purple by Alice Walker

Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis

Up next:

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
