Journal Entry 1 by TheLostBook from Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom on Sunday, January 18, 2009
This book is part of The Lost Book, a project within a reading campaign celebrating Arthur Conan Doyle's 150th birthday on 22 May 2009. The hound shown here is Watson, one of the main characters in The Lost Book web series. He won't have to deal with a murder investigation, but it has a stolen book to uncover.

We'd like to start a bookray for The Hound of the Baskervilles - to get as many readers as possible for Arthur Conan Doyle's shaggy dog tale. If you'd like to join, PM with shipping preferences. The book is a light paperback: ~160g (~6oz) with only 209 pages.

From the back cover:
The coroner may have ruled death by natural causes. but Sherlock Holmes knows there's something more sinister behind Sir Charles Baskerville’s demise. The question is, could he really have fallen victim to the legendary phantom hound, the curse said to have haunted his ancestors for generations? Or is this the work of a very real and calculating murderer?

Terrifying, thrilling and addictive - this celebrated tale of chilling murder, played out on the bleak, eerie wilds of a West Country moor, never ceases to enthrall generation after generation.

This is great fun! Holmes sends Watson off to the West Country on his own, to investigate a suspicious death. Watson's narration is in a variety of styles, including extracts from his diary and letters to Holmes. He uncovers a complex story with lots of clues - but only Holmes is capable of interpreting them all.

I'll post this on to pinkydinky as soon as I have an address.

Fantastic. Have seen a couple of T.V. adaptations of this but have never read it before. I really enjoyed it. Lots of clues along the way. Watson providing most of the clues and Holmes interpreting them.

I thought a status update on this book might be appreciated.

I have been reading this book for the last two days. I am at around page 70. Dr Watson has just left with Sir Henry for Baskerville

Journal Entry 16 by NMReader at Herndon, Virginia USA on Sunday, July 18, 2010
I justed finished the book. I enjoy Sir Athur Conan Dooyle's writing. I have read this book before but he is always a joy to read.

I do sometimes think that Holmes is somewhat unfair and unkind to Watson.

I enjoyed the book. I have already addressed the envelope and sealed it. I'll drop at the PO tomorrow.

Arrived safe and sound today! Thank you to nmreader for passing it forward!

I just have to finish my current read and then I will start this book!

Thank you to the Lost Book for organizing this ring!

Journal Entry 19 by rockyhorror1978 at St. Catharines, Ontario Canada on Sunday, August 01, 2010
This is the second Sherlock Holmes book I have read. Considering this book was written over a hundred years ago, it is still as relevant today as it was then, truly timeless. Sherlock Holmes, as a character is quirky and fun to read. Watson is a great sidekick, who is patient with Holmes for his somewhat unorthodox approach and admires his keen sense of observation. The original dynamic duo!

I will get this book in the post ASAP to Wandering-B. Thank you once again for this bookray!
