One of my dad‘s friends sent him 5 boxes of books. He put his selections in one then sent the rest off to Goodwill, but not before snagging these self-described “two handsome volumes” for me.

They will make great replacements for my worn out paperbacks.

“I had neither kith nor kin in England, and was therefore as free as air -- or as free as an income of eleven shillings and sixpence a day will permit a man to be. Under such circumstances, I naturally gravitated to London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the #Empire are irresistibly drained.”

It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”

“My mind is like a racing engine, tearing itself to pieces because it is not connected up with the work for which it was built. Life is commonplace; the papers are sterile; #audacity and romance seem to have passed forever from the criminal world. Can you ask me, then, whether I am ready to look into any new problem, however trivial it may prove?”

Just got my library app never listened to an audiobook before so I actually have no ideas where to start 🤔

inthegreensandblues I think you have some solid picks there to start with. If the narrator is good, then I think thrillers and memoirs are great in audio format. And Stephen Fry is always good! 9mo
4thhouseontheleft I get a lot of great ideas by checking out the #audiobook hashtag. 9mo

Still slowly working my way through this audiobook. Interestingly, I just finished the collection “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” and here are my thoughts so far: way more crime rests on tobacco knowledge here than seems truly likely 😉; Mycroft was only in one story so far?!; and Moriarty was only introduced in The Final Problem. Clearly, things only really get going after Sherlock seems to have perished. #audiobook

“‘How long is this to last?‘ asked the inspector finally. ‘And what is it we are watching for?‘

‘I have no more notion than you how long it is to last,‘ Holmes answered with some asperity. ‘If criminals would #always schedule their movements like railway trains, it would certainly be more convenient for all of us.‘”

I was in love with Sherlock within the first 10 pages, and 1000+ later I'm so sad that there isn't any more. Holmes is charmingly insulting, Watson is adorably devoted, the mysteries are fabulously crafted. This isn't just plain wonderful, folks; it's wonderful with raisins.

Alright, pay close attention. If you like long, dramatic stories that last forever (in a good way), than this book is for you. At a beautiful 1,077 pages, this is the longest book I've ever read! I wanted to read it after starting BBC's Sherlock (an amazing show, watch it!), and although very long, totally worth it. Plus, look at the cover and gold pages! Available at Barnes & Noble.

gretaalisonreads Wow! Gorgeous, and I have to add this to my list! 3y

I just finished 'The Sign of the Four' and enjoyed it way more than when I had to pick it to pieces for my lit class, which just goes to show how over analysing something can ruin it for you!
Now I'm up to 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes', which includes 'A Scandal in Bohemia', and 'The Adventure of the Five Orange Pips', amongst others.

I just finished 'A Study in Scarlet' (which I really enjoyed) and now it's on to 'The Sign of the Four'. I've read this one before and I'm not particularly fond of it, but I was studying it for uni the first time around so maybe I'll like it better when I'm not having to analyse it.

Heather_Reads @Lola Awesome! Have you liked all the stories so far? I can't wait to get to Hounds of the Baskerville. 3y
Lola @Heather_Reads I have! I read A Study in Scarlet because I wanted to participate in the @Litsy #serial read of The Sign of the Four and decided I wanted to read the stories in order.My husband is a big Sherlock Holmes fan, so it's fun to read these stories from that perspective too. I just read my first noir/hard-boiled detective book, Red Harvest by Hammett, written in 1929 and clearly influenced by Doyle so that's added to the experience as well 3y
