Blog Party Book Club Discussion of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

I hope everyone had a chance to finish the book and is as excited as I am for our first Blog Party Book Club discussion! Here’s how this will work. Below is some discussion questions about The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for you to answer in a blog post on your personal blog or website.

Once you have written your post with your answers to the questions, come back to this page and enter your name and the link to your post in the form below.

After I receive your link, I will post it to this page so that everyone can see it. Check back here periodically to see if any new links have been added.

Then, feel free to check out what your fellow BPBC members have written. Be sure to comment on other people’s posts  with your thoughts and reactions to what they have written.  The ability to chat with other book lovers is half the fun of this little exercise!

We are still looking for suggestions of what book to read next so please let me know if you have one you would like to suggest. Also we would love to get more people involved, so please tell your friends about the Blog Party Book Club so they can get involved in time for our next book!

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.
