My book addiction has no cure and in a bargain book shop the other day I purchased along with some Sue Graftons, a book about Sherlock Holmes.
Not another book about Sherlock Holmes!

This one is a 'pocket essential guide with in depth analysis of all the stories, a sampling of the best pastiches and parodies, an exhaustive listing of actors who have played the role, and a summary of the best websites devoted to Holmes and Conan-Doyle.'
Each of the stories are rated out of 5 so there is plenty to argue about with other Sherlockians. eg The Adventure of the Speckled Band scores 5/5 and The Adventure of the Copper Beeches 3/5.
Well worth the £2.99 I paid.
"It is nearly midnight, Watson, and I think we may make our way back to our humble abode."
