I looked back through several different posts and am not quite sure what the final decision was.  Thanks in advance.

Vivian, here is the info, it's in the January Book of the Month thread, which I bumped to the top.

Read the novella "The Hound of the Baskervilles" and then the following short stories for a discussion on January 18. "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" "The Red-Headed League" "The Adventure of the Dancing Men" "The Adventure of the Final Problem" "A Scandal in Bohemia" "The Adventure of the Empty House"

Thanks, Diane.  I don't know why I couldn't locate it.  Just like the Classics Challenge, I wasn't planning to do the Holmes stuff.  Evidently, I can't resist joining a book discussion.  I'm not using it as part of my challenge but may just read them all any way.  I haven't read Sherlock Holmes since reading some on my own in high school.

So, are we going to do Baskervilles first and then one story at a time?   I haven't participated in one of these yet and wondered how it would shake down.  I was going to try Turn of the Screw last fall but it didn't work out.

I am impressed with everyone's lists for the challenge, now I have to finish deciding on my choices.

 

Cheers!
