Reading progress update: I've read 180 out of 336 pages.
The Hog's Back Mystery - Freeman Wills Crofts

Hmmm.  I'm beginning to understand why Tigus was wondering whether Crofts's insistence on playing fair with the reader is going to the disadvantage of Inspector French, in not making him draw conclusions and open up lines of investigation that would occur to a reader at this point.

 

Reading this for the Detection Club Bingo, and will also be posting a guess on its basis in the KYD green round (not saying yet for which card, though).

Reading Progress Update: A Cautionary Word on Cats
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Stephen Fry

(I'm about 35-40% in now, but going back to the very beginning -- I listened to this in the car today:)

"Mr Dursley blinked and stared at the cat.  It stared back.  As Mr Dursley drove around the corner and up the road, he watched the cat in his mirror.  It was now reading the sign that said Privet Drive -- no, looking at the sign; cats couldn't read maps or signs.  Mr Dursley gave himself a little shake and put the cat out of his mind."

So you think cats can't read maps, can they, Uncle Vernon?

 

 

(And her name wasn't even Professor McGonagall ... well, not that I was ever aware, at least!)

 

And yes, that is a map of London, too.
