First Line Fridays - 5/19/17 - A Surprise Classic

Friday, May 19, 2017

Every once in awhile my nerd girl heart bursts through and I have to share a line from a book that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. This week I am sharing with you a VERY special book to me (although I have yet to read it.) A couple weeks ago my Granny sent me a few (like 8) boxes FULL of books...OLD books! Randomly I will share different books that are now in my possession. Today's book was published in 1904 (as best I can figure, since there is no date in the book itself). Here is the cover..........

I hope you can tell who that is...(see I was sneaky and didn't put the title of the book in the post title muahahaha)

If not...You shall be forgiven...Here is the spine...

In case you can't read it...It says...

Conan Doyle's Best Books 
VOL. 1

Stories of Sherlock Holmes

Oh yes...My first line comes from A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle...

In the year 1878 I took my degree of Doctor of Medicine of the University of London, and proceeded to Netley to go through the course prescribed for surgeons in the army.

Amazon (yes you can purchase this edition for a reasonable price)
