#HailTheBail I'm starting to think that all the free ebooks I've collected over the years and finally getting around to reading are duds. This was my #DoubleSpin for March and with it goes the 2nd and 3rd books of the Everville series that were also on my TBR.

Another good month for my challenges and buddy reads. I didn‘t finish two of my rolled #Roll100 books but The Goldfinch is one of my March #ReadOrDonate books. At 800+ pages I‘ve started it now.

I did a thing. I ventured out this weekend to see my daughter in Providence. We went to the Athenæum and then to Aleppo Sweets for some Arabic coffee with cardamom and of course some baklava. The Athenæum had a sale so I got 6 books for less than $10!!! No anxiety. It was lovely.

batsy That sounds lovely. Baklava + books 👌🏾 3mo
Bookwomble Sounds so relaxing and nurturing 💖 3mo
IndoorDame Oooh, Ive always wanted to go and just never gotten around to it even though I live right near there! 2mo

Cuilin @Bookwomble it really was. 🩷 2mo
Cuilin @IndoorDame I recommend. It‘s a beautiful space. Have you been to the library on Nantucket? It reminded me of that. (edited) 2mo
Cuilin @Bklover delightful 🩷 2mo
IndoorDame @Cuilin no. I actually haven‘t been out to Nantucket at all since I was a girl, before I lived in the area. I used to go as a tourist to visit family friends. 2mo
dabbe #yahooyou! Looks like a lovely trip. 🖤🩶🖤 2mo

A Study in Scarlet | Arthur Conan Doyle

Hello, Sherlockians~
Time for a little discussion about A STUDY IN SCARLET. I‘m not hiding the questions, so if you don‘t want to see them yet, don‘t look! 😃 There are 6 questions; respond whenever you wish! 🤩

Librarybelle I really liked the setup of the first part. It was good to hear the back story of how Watson met Holmes. The second half was a struggle - by the end, I understood why we had to know the beginning part of part two, but it took me awhile to get to that point. 3mo
Aimeesue The meeting was neat; it‘s been so long since I‘ve read this one, I‘d forgotten how they got together. I‘d also forgotten he worked in a chem lab, experimenting all over the place. 3mo

Read4life It was great going back to the beginning. 3mo
IndoorDame I loved that this opened with Watson‘s whole backstory before we even meet Sherlock. And I enjoyed the first glimpses into Sherlock‘s persona and his relationship with Watson starting to build. 3mo
CatLass007 This is the first Holmes I‘ve ever read and I don‘t know why it took me so long to get here. I begin to understand why Holmes and Watson are so beloved to readers. 3mo
aroyse It‘s been years since I‘ve read a Holmes! I love that Watson isn‘t sure at first what to make of Holmes and even thinks he‘s a little full of himself. And Holmes‘ army of street boys - love them!! They are the eyes and ears of the streets. 3mo
kelli7990 I tried reading Sherlock Holmes a long time ago as an ebook and I didn‘t like it that way so I decided to listen to it on audio instead. I wasn‘t sure if I was going to like it at first but I decided to keep going with the story and I liked it. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks I've never read any of the Holmes stories before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I ended up enjoying it (with some reservations). It was a fun, engaging read. Ironically, it was the mystery that I found to be a little lacking haha 3mo
AnneCecilie This was the first Sherlock I ever read, but I have had intentions to ever since I bought The Complete Sherlock Holmes back in 2017. I loved reading about how they met, it reminded me very much of the BBC production. I felt completely lost during the first half of the second part, even if it did make sense in the end. 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm I liked the beginning..introduction of Dr Watson, and how he got to meet Holmes. 3mo
Pageturner1 i liked this. enjoyed learning about the friendship. 3mo
eeclayton For me this was a re-read. I enjoyed the first part more than the second, but the switch wasn't as jarring as the first time around. @TheAromaofBooks I too felt that the character studies were way more entertaining than the mystery! 3mo
CogsOfEncouragement I read this nine years ago, I've seen the Sherlock episode, and I listened to the audiobook for this reread. I really enjoyed it. Part two seems to come out of nowhere, but I appreciate the unique way Doyle had the mystery unfold. 3mo
dabbe @Librarybelle Yeah, the 2nd part could probably have read as its own novel. Even the writing style and narrator were quite different and took some getting used to. 🤗 3mo
dabbe @Aimeesue Or that he'd hit corpses to see how the blood congealed. 😳 3mo
dabbe @5feet.of.fury 🤗 3mo
dabbe @Read4life 🤗 3mo
dabbe @IndoorDame I loved how they instantly shared their bad traits and seemed to have instant karma. 🤗 3mo
dabbe @CatLass007 Oh how they will grow on you the more we read! 🤗 3mo
dabbe @aroyse I love the list he makes of Holmes re: his good and bad traits. I also forgot that Holmes knows NOTHING about literature but EVERYTHING about sensational literature! 🤗 3mo
dabbe @kelli7990 #yahooyou! IMHO this is not the best of the stories/novels. So, hang in there because some really good ones are coming up! 🤗 3mo
dabbe @TheAromaofBooks It was pretty much a straight revenge story and arguably not his best. Greater stories are coming! 🤗 3mo
dabbe @AnneCecilie The 2nd part was such a turn from the 1st. It almost read like a history book, didn't it? 🤗 3mo
dabbe @eeclayton Agreed. That's what makes these characters so beloved; we will really get to know them as the canon unfolds. 🤗 3mo
dabbe @CogsOfEncouragement It's almost like each part were completely separate rivers that come together in the ocean at the end. 🤗 3mo
CatLass007 @dabbe Rivers coming to the ocean. I like that. It‘s very poetic. 3mo
CrystalE02 I loved the book!!! I felt like the first part was interesting and a great read, I did struggle with second part. I did enjoy the book and the characters. I enjoyed reading Sherlock's interaction with the cases and the other characters. 3mo
AllDebooks It's the first time I've read this one. I absolutely loved it, especially the second half. 3mo
dabbe @CatLass007 🤩🤗😍 3mo
dabbe @CrystalE02 It only gets better from here! 🤩 3mo
dabbe @AllDebooks That's great to hear! Do you enjoy historical fiction--because that's how the 2nd part unfolded for me. 🤗 3mo
mom2bugnbee I've read them before, but it's been some time, and since then I've become a HUGE fan of the Cumberbatch/Freeman BBC series. I loved comparing the two! 3mo
dabbe @mom2bugnbee I adore that series! So creative and, well, there's Benedict! 🤩 3mo
Mollyanna I am way behind on our readings and just finished this book a week or so ago. I really enjoyed it and loved seeing how Dr. Watson and Holmes originally connected. 1mo
dabbe @Mollyanna Absolutely no worries! Read when you can! It is fun to see how they originally met and basically sized each other up to see if they were fit to be roommates. The best roommate pairing in literature (IMHO). 🤩 1mo

My favorite 2023 reads! 📚

I read a total of 30 books this year. This is the fifth year in a row that I haven‘t met my reading goal, but that‘s okay. I still enjoy reading, which is the most important thing, and it‘s my favorite past time. My almost 2-year-old seems to enjoy books and reading just as much as me, which makes my heart so happy ❤️

But I have feeling 2024 is my year, and I might just meet my goal again!

ChaoticMissAdventures I always like to say it isn't the number but the quality. As long as you are picking up books you love to read you are winning! And 30 is so much more than most people. That is over 2 a month! Some people don't read 2 a year 3mo
dabbe #ditto what @ChaoticMissAdventures said. You came, you saw, you read! #yahooyou! 🖤💙🖤 3mo
BittersweetBooks @ChaoticMissAdventures @dabbe thank you both for the reminder!! 😊 3mo
