In October I wrote a post titled The Case of the Missing Book.
The post was about trying to find a missing volume of my two volume set of Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I would like to say that I have solved the case and that I have found Volume I of this set, but the book is still missing.
I am thinking of the book again tonight as I am getting ready to watch the first episode of the third season of Sherlock. Yesterday I watched the last episode of the second season so I would be ready.
Although I didn’t find Volume I of the set shown above, I found another one that I had picked up at our library used book sale. I had found Volume I in hardback and went ahead and bought it. I had it in the back of my mind that I would keep an eye out for the second volume.
The titles of the two sets are different, but luckily the contents are still divided the same way. I have all the Sherlock stories. Plus, Volume I of the other set is around here somewhere. I need to get back on the case.
I am really looking forward to watching Sherlock tonight. I have friends in Canada who has been waiting for two ever so long years for the next season. I have only waited a few months, but am still looking forward to it.
Writing this post has me thinking of other writings by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I have read all of the Sherlock Holmes books in the past as well as The Lost World and The White Company. Doyle wrote many more books. I need to read some of them, especially the other books that feature Professor Challenger.
Now for some dinner before sitting down to watch Sherlock.
Have you been waiting for Sherlock?
