So yesterday it was brought to my attention that there is such a thing as #SherlockSaturday but I missed it so here's a #SherlockSunday 😬. It was Dr Watson's birthday on the 7th July, which is also the date that Arthur Conan Doyle died. .
πŸ”
I'm hoping to read The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes soon as I'm missing the Sherlock short stories. .
πŸ”
I know I've asked before, but what's your favourite Sherlock short story? Some of mine include The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle, A Scandal in Bohemia and The Red-Headed League.

"He just wanted a decent book to read..." - the back of all Popular Penguin paperbacks.

Sir Allen Lane, who founded Penguin Books, said of his publishing company: "We believed in the existence of a vast reading public for intelligent books at a low price, and staked everything on it." How right he was!

This community still surprises me with its kindness and generosity and I truly love being a part of it. The lovely Jude from @mybookbath recently travelled to the UK and to Hay-on-Wye. I unfortunately missed her (and lots of other bookstagrammers) as the taxi company I had booked with cancelled at the last minute and I had to catch the last bus back very early. I sincerely hope Jude (and Micol from @literaryjourney) are able to come back next year as I will be there for a few days this time! (See @bookstagramhay for the dates!)

Jude brought me this stunning edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes/The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes (and some Sweet Georgia Browns which didn't make it to the photo...they were lovely! πŸ˜‹). Coincidentally, before I opened Jude's gift, I finally bought the Sherlock Penguin mug when I collected Jude's gift from @dannii.elle.reads, who met me in Waterstones. .
πŸ”
Thank you so much Jude! We shall meet one day. (And my mum is going to look up a recipe for the Sweet Georgia Browns 😁).

Any Sherlock fans? What's your favourite Sherlock story or novel?

Some Penguin memorabilia courtesy of The Lane Press. Stuart Kells' Penguin and the Lane Brothers tells the story of the publishing house while Outback Penguin brings us Richard Lane's Barwell Diaries. Both books present engrossing stories - people who had a profound influence on the history of publishing; a man, in Richard's case, who journeyed across the world as a young man and went on to lead a diverse and interesting life. #penguinbooks #richardlane #thelanepress #lanepress #stuartkells #barwelldiaries #memorabilia #penguinmerchandise #booksofkells #publishing #publishinghouse #publishingcompany #southaustralia

"There are things in that paper that nobody knows but me, or ever will."

For this short story Sunday I'm sharing a story that I read last year, and one that instantly became a favourite. The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a creepy little tale but with deeper meaning, with themes such as post natal depression, a controlling husband, feelings of belittlement and dismissal, the other more capable woman, paranoia, abstraction and tons of metaphors. It's so effective. I read this in the Penguin Little Black Classics edition and will be reading the larger Oxford World Classics collection of this authors short stories later in the year. .

The May book for @maidensofmurder is The Thirteen Problems. Some of us Maidens will also be reading The Body in the Library. Please join us over at @maidensofmurder!
.

Exciting news - The Thirteen Problems is also the book of the month for @officialagathachristie and we will be linking with them for some facts about the book and Agatha Christie 'shelfie' posts. Follow @maidensofmurder and @officialagathachristie so you don't miss anything. .

I will also be watching the TV adaptations of The Body in the Library (season 1, episode 1) and a story from The Thirteen Problems, The Blue Geranium (season 5, episode 3), after reading the books. If anyone else is doing this, let me know! .

Reposting my pic for #WorldPenguinDay. As most of you know, I love Penguin Books! 🐧❀️ #penguinbooks #penguinstagram #penguinclassics #penguinmerchandise #bookstagram

I've used the fabulous Penguin Books Postcards (from the Sci-fi edition) to create a frame to hang on my wall. Would make a great gift! #HGWells #penguinbooks #penguinstagram #penguinclassics #penguinenglishlibrary #penguinmerchandise #bookstagram #bookishgift #goodnightboutiquerep

One of my favourite authors. I will be reading The War of the Worlds and his short stories this year. Possibly The Rights of Man too. Who else is a H. G. Wells fan? πŸ™Œ #hgwells #thewaroftheworlds #therightsofman #penguinenglishlibrary #penguinmerchandise #penguinclassics #shelfie
