World Book Day: Sherlock Holmes #Shelfie

It’s World Book Day, and so I thought I’d take a shelfie of my favourite book: Sherlock Holmes.

This leather-bound edition of the Complete Sherlock Holmes stories is one of my most treasured books, and the centrepiece of my collection.

I do have other Holmes books, including The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in English and an illustrated German version. I also have non-ACD Holmes stories, like Young Sherlock Holmes by Andrew Lane and House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz.

And in front of the Sherlock Holmes book and violin, are two small figurines of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as they appear on the modern BBC show Sherlock, because I like Holmes & Watson in all their incarnations.  The small lads were made by Elanor Clay Works on Etsy.
