Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musing

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. November’s host is Crystal of I totally paused! 

 I did not receive any book, but I downloaded a lot of free e-books!

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about something related to books each week…

• Maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I have been teaching The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle to my Class XII girls. It is the prescribed novel for English core introduced this year. The girls and I are having great fun reading it. Initially the novel was a bit confusing for them but right now we are in the most interesting part of the novel. 

I had read it long time back, watched the movie too but re-reading was fun too!

About 20 years ago I read this book when my grandson was reading it for a class in school. I haven't read it since, but if I remember correctly I enjoyed it.

I didn't read Sherlock Holmes until a few years ago. What a world I missed out on! Your students are very lucky.
