Shakespeare, Tolkien, Arthur Conan Doyle - Mini-March reading challenge wrap up

The Mini-March Reading meme/tag/challenge – whatever you want to call it, hosted by The Once Lost Wanderer included three challenges:



Sherlock Holmes weekend, March 17-19
Shakespeare week, March 20-26
And National Tolkien Reading Day, March 25.

For these challenges, I read:

The Gloria Scott and The Musgrave Ritual – Sherlock Holmes 1st and 2nd cases, both short stories.

The Two Gentlemen of Verona – One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays (possibly the first).

And Beowulf translated by J.R.R. Tolkien together with Sellic Spell, which is Tolkiens retelling of Beowulf in English prose.

Thanks to Hamlette at the Edge of the Precipice for joining the challenge: See her reading selections HERE.
