The Case of the Missing Book II

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.

Sherlock Holmes - The Complete Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock TV SeriesI had found Volume II, but could not find the first one.

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.

Sherlock Holmes - The Complete Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock TV SeriesAlthough 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.

Sherlock Holmes - The Complete Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock TV SeriesThe 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?

    I also misplace books. . . Sometime I think I have too many, but I always decide that I just need to organize them better (if I ever find the time).

    Steven, you need to get on Jeopardy as you are so well read and traveled.

    Is this the Sherlock from BBC? I was recommended to watch that series but haven’t found it to be on in my area at times I could watch it. 😀
