“Where there’s fire there’s… ”
This weeks theme: A cover featuring smoke.
My Choice: The Complete Sherlock Holmes
For those of you that don’t know, in the USA, April 20th is “weed day.” In Colorado weed is legal so on 4/20 there are huge rallies and parties downtown where everyone gets high. I don’t do weed (in any form) so I won’t be participating but I know a few people who will be lighting up today.
I don’t know if it was planned or not, but “smoke” is a fitting theme for 4/20 haha. I couldn’t find a good cover for smoking weed, so I chose a cover with just normal smoking. The classic Sherlock Holmes!

Goodreads has 318 different editions of The Complete Sherlock Holmes! I picked the first ish 28, and am going to pick from those! But there are TONS of other covers!
The way I normally format these posts I usually pick a top 4, but I couldn’t decide on only 4!
I couldn’t decide on just one! I really like simplicity of the first one, but I love the overall feel of the second! They are both awesome!
Which cover is your favorite? Do you agree with my picks?
