What I'm Reading Now: 12 October 15

Haven't finished anything this week, either. I'm in process of reading The Golden Slipper: and other problems for Violet Strange by Anna Katharine Green, which I found on Project Gutenberg. Green was an American writer of detective fiction, and Violet is a debutante with a secret life as a snoop. She has a mysterious employer, and a secret sign by which she can recognize the people he sends her. The stories are interesting, but the writing style is distinctly old-fashioned. I think I'll read some R. Austin Freeman next - also available on Gutenberg, and with a slightly more... robust style, shall we say.

(Apropos of nothing - I was knitting today. It felt good.)
