Classic Mystery Prompt #8

 Yes, I am doing Classic Remarks a day late. This is actually a tough question. Which Sherlock Holmes work should someone start with if they have never read a Holmes mystery before?

Well, I haven’t really read Sherlock Holmes. I remember loving Hound of the Baskervilles in 12th grade, but didn’t know it was a Holmes novel. Think that book will be a good suggestion. One of the thing I loved getting was a Sherlock Holmes collection of short stories- called Sherlock Holmes: A Gripping Casebook of Stories.

As you can easily see in the picture below, you will notice my Holmes collection.

  1. This is an interesting question. I haven’t read Sherlock Holmes before, either, so I don’t really know what to say. I also have a collection, though, that I hope to get to sometime soon so maybe I should look into what people say about this! I hadn’t even really thought that people might have a preferred order of reading them; I was just planning on reading them in the order they appear in the collection (which, I am assuming, is probably by publication date).
