It’s time to play TCF Hangman II

This is an ongoing game that anyone can play. Jump in at any time to request a letter, but you have to have asked for at least one letter in order to make a guess at the puzzle.

To see if a certain letter is in the puzzle, read a book with a title or author's first or last name that starts with the letter that you’d like to guess (ignore a, an and the).

examples:
to ask for a B - The Beekeeper's Apprentice
to ask for a J - a book by Jane Austen
to ask for a W - a book by Scott Westerfeld
to ask for a F - 44 Scotland Street

You must finish your book after the puzzle is posted.
Books must be at least 150 pages.
For anthologies, go by the editor's name.

To make a guess at the quote, put your solution in a separate post.
Whoever gets it first, wins.

Great minds think alike, Lanelle! I had already set up a mention of the new thread as I'm working on the March Newsletter, and I'm scrolling through to get to another thread and this one caught my eye! You'll get flooded with members hopefully when that goes out!

I read A Study in Sherlock: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon last year and liked it, but I think she was only the editor (and wrote the introduction). Might try reading the first one eventually. After I lower my TBR numbers from the 2,500s...
