Tuesday Photo-Books

 
 
When I saw that this week's Wordsmith Studio Photo Prompt was Books, I knew exactly which book I would photograph.
 
The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is one of  my oldest and most read books. You can see the wear along the edges of the binding and evidence that the book has been opened and closed many times. There is even a bit of unraveling going on. Only one small panel of the dust jacket remains and it is missing a corner. I have turned it into a bookmark.
 
To read more about my adventures with Sherlock, see a previous post-Elementary, My Dear Poet.
 
Thanks to Rebecca Barray for this week's photo prompt. Take a picture of one or some of your books and post a link to the photo in the comments on the prompt post.

  2. I love it (too)!! I love old favorite books, or any book that has that old bookshelf look and feel. This makes me want to start up my antique editions collection again! :)
