Reading progress update: I've read 72 out of 502 pages.

Gaudy Night - Dorothy L. Sayers

Btw, I'm entirely running on coffee today as I simply could not put this book down last night ... or rather early morning.

 

This scene, you guys. This scene. 

 

I'm not copying out the whole scene because I know that others are also discovering the series at the moment. 

 

But damn, ... This was possibly the most romantic thing any of the characters I've ever met has ever said:

“I’m damned if I’ll have you wiped out by plug-uglies or anonymous letter writers!”

 

Needless to say, this is a major book hangover in the making.
