"Persuasion" and Sherlock Holmes

Just a couple of quick reminders, in case you haven't noticed the buttons in my sidebar.  Heidi's read-along of Jane Austen's Persuasion begins one week from today!  Go here to learn more :-)

Coming in January at a friend's blog 

And I'm throwing a birthday blog party for Sherlock Holmes on January 6th on my book blog, The Edge of the Precipice.  Go here for more info.  You can definitely join up even if you've never read any of the canon and are just a fan of some filmed version or other -- all Holmes fans are welcome!  It'll be like a shorter version of my Tolkien Blog Party that I throw every September -- a little questionnaire you can fill out on your own blog, a link-up for participants, a giveaway.  It begins the 6th, but you'll have a whole week to participate and enter the giveaway, so don't panic if you miss out on the 6th.

Coming Soon

  1. If I remember, I'll totally want to do the Sherlock Holmes party! Sherlock is my number one favorite hero of all fiction combined, so there's no way I'll pass this up! Looking forward to it now!!!

    3. NO! I never got any of those cuz I couldn't decide, and then I was at the mall with my mom and my kids on Monday, and we ducked into the bookstore cuz can't none of us resist a bookstore, and I thought, "I should see if they have any pretty copies of Persuasion." And lo and behold, for only $10, the Most Gorgeous Copy. I will share photos of it -- it's sunny today, so should have good light to take some.

    1. Excellent! I'll be posting over on The Edge of the Precipice again when it starts, but be sure to follow the link to my friend Heidi's new blog, Literary Adventures Along the Brandywine, for the official kick-off and all the chapter updates, etc.

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
