And landed on space #2 -  Who? Read a mystery or detective story or a book with the word "who" in the title. (after passing GO!).  As you can see, this proved to be a mildly contentious roll, as Easter-cat didn't feel the need to share.  (This is not convenient anthropomorphism either - the hostility is very real, and very much the status quo round here at the house of the spoiled cats.)


For this square, I'm going to read The Nine Tailors by Dorothy L. Sayers, one of the two remaining Whimsey/mysteries I've left to read from Sayers.
