By now I should be half way through my chosen book. By now, I should be feeling rather more accomplished. By now, I should be feeling a bit more comfortable reading outside my comfort zone. In reality, not so much.

Complete in nine handsome volumes, each with an introduction by a Doyle scholar, a chronology, a selected bibliography, and explanatory notes, the Oxford Sherlock Holmes series offers a definitive collection of the famous detective's adventures. No home library is complete without it.
Comprising the series of short stories that made the fortunes of the Strand, the magazine in which they were first published, this volume won even more popularity for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Holmes is at the height of his powers in many of his most famous cases, including "The Red-Headed League," "The Speckled Band," and "The Blue Carbuncle."
“It is an old maxim of mine that when you have excluded the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the the truth.”
It’s just not as effortless to read or as captivating as others on my bookshelf. I’m about 30% in so far. If this was a report card, my comments would say ‘could do better’ and ‘too easily distracted’. I need an adult to make me turn off twitter, put away my lighter novels and read a little of my classic every week. Oh yes, that’s right, I’m the adult, I need to kick my own ass into gear. Elementary, my dear blogger friends.
