Blog Party Book Club Update – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

We’re starting a new online book club with a read of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. For more details of how you can join in the fun, visit: http://bit.ly/1fHRuLj

So here’s what’s going on with the Blog Party Book Club. If everything had gone according to plan, we would have a bunch of people who are just finishing up the book and I would be posting some discussion questions for everyone to answer on their blogs, leading to a lot of fun conversation about the world’s most famous detective. However, I spent most of April dealing with some health and family issues, which means that I am massively behind on my reading, on coming up with discussion questions and on promoting the BPBC, which means we only have a couple of people who are on board for this month’s book.

What I would like to do, is extend the deadline for another month, effectively do a do-over for our read of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes to give everyone a chance to catch up on reading the book and to try to find some more folks who want to join our discussion. I sincerely believe that the more people we have participating, the more fun it will be so I think the extra time will work out in our favor in the long run. So, if you guys wouldn’t mind, I would like to make the new deadline June 2nd and I promise that I will be more on the ball this time around.

In the meanwhile, you can help the Blog Party Book Club get off the ground by:

1. Reading the book if you haven’t already.

2. And by spreading the word by sharing this post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.  (Feel free to download and share the BPBC Sherlock Banner at the top of this post or to make up your own Baker Street themed graphics to share).

And as a little token of appreciation for your patience and understanding, I put together this Sherlock Holmes themed treasury of handmade Etsy goodies.

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
