Scandal in Bohemia by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
1/18-22/2007-22 pages–short story
Borrowed from public library (collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories)
King of Bohemia about to marry princess and old flame is jealous. She has “compromising” picture of them together. Sherlock gets foiled before he can get it back from her because she realizes its he and runs away with it. But she’s happily and newly married to another man and no longer wishes to blackmail the king. I like this one because Sherlock got beat in his own game and was quite baffled.
Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
