I've gotten bitten by the reading bug again (finally).
* The Sign of Four - Arthur Conan Doyle

* King Solomon's Mines - H. Rider Haggard
... my mini review: https://ello.co/johnkochnorthrup/post/ei0v9kAjLwrIF5Pe4Vny5A
I finished the 2nd Edgar Rice Borroughs Mars book and am half way through the 3rd. Mini reviews later but... in a nutshell.
Book 1 - Excellent fun. Had me wanting to keep reading all the way through.
Book 2 - also Excellent. Exploring parts of Mars hinted at in Book 1.
Book 3 - ...and... ok this is getting old. Unless the back half saves the book - this one was phoned in. (or telegraphed more likely).
