5 books finished in 2014: The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

I’ve come up with a quasi-resolution for 2014 – that I’m going to try to read as many classics as possible, taking advantage of the numerous free ebooks available for my kindle. (Related to that, I’m also attempting to shop our bookshelves, and to finally pick up books I’ve overlooked OR re-reading some old favorites.The goal is to NOT buy any new books this year.)

With that in mind, I’m going to have a lot of unattractive kindle book covers to share with you this year!

Starting with this one, which, no matter how I tried to rearrange it, wouldn’t put the title and author on one page.

These were my first Sherlock stories! I loved them, which is no real surprise considering my quasi-recent love affair with other classic mysteries. Thankfully, this genre is seemingly endless!

One of the delights of reading these stories is discovering the many, many shout-outs embedded in the new BBC series. It’s an extra level of fun, and I’ll admit that I see Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch as Watson and Sherlock while I’m reading.
