Challenge Complete: Death by Gaslight

1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012

For the Death by Gaslight Reading Challenge, I set myself up for Level #3 Burke and Hare, Body Snatchers with a bonus challenge: The Great Detective: Read 5 (or more) books featuring Sherlock Holmes, at least one of which must be an original story by Arthur Conan Doyle. All present and accounted for as of today.  I've still got almost two months left in the year and there are a few more books sitting on this year's TBR stacks that can count towards one of these I may be adding a few more titles.  But my declared challenge is all done.
This has been a lot of fun.  I'm so glad that Jenn C put this together.
