Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, September 29, 2020
This softcover was among the books donated to the Nashua Public Library for distribution to the Little Free Libraries. It contains a number of better-known Holmes stories (and a few more obscure ones):

"A Scandal in Bohemia"
"The Adventure of the Red-Headed League"
"A Case of Identity"
"The Boscombe Valley Mystery"
"The Five Orange Pips"
"The Man with the Twisted Lip"
"The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle"
"The Adventure of the Speckled Band"
"The Adventure of the Engineer's Thumb"
"The Adventure of the Noble Bachelor"
"The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet"
"The Adventure of the Copper Beeches"

Most of those have been adapted for the screen, some several times; my favorite versions are from the TV series starring Jeremy Brett. (I'm especially fond of the "Blue Carbuncle" story, but they're all great fun.)

[There's an extensive TV Tropes page on the Holmes canon and adaptations, with references to this collection.]
