I Read a Book Once - Sherlock Holmes - A Study in Scarlet - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

If you didn't already know, Arthur Conan Doyle's very first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, is actually a pretty standard work of 19th century anti-Mormon fiction. The villains are neanderthal like Mormons, who murder, kidnap and force an innocent young woman into plural marriage under the direction of their sinister leader, Brigham young.  (If you want to know how this all leads to a couple of mysterious murders in London, England, you can read the book.)

In the 130 years since Doyle wrote this novel, I can't see that the characterization of Mormons in popular literature and culture has changed very much; although the Mormon caricature of the late 19th and early 20th century tends to be of a fiendish religious fanatic, dogmatically trying to force others to participate in deviant sexual practices, while the Mormon caricature of the late 20th and early 21st century tends to be of a feindish religious fanatic, dogmatically trying to prevent others from participating in deviant sexual practices.

I thought I would be able to ready A Study in Scarlet and overlook the depiction of early Mormonism as quaint, amusing and misguided, but it actually bugged me more than I thought it would.  It was fun to read about how Dr. Watson first met Sherlock Holmes, and to diagnose Holmes as and Aspergers, bipolar savant. But even a century later, I couldn't get past the unfair misrepresenation of my faith and my ancestors.

I wonder if anyone has done Arthur Conan Doyle's temple work.
========================================================================

Books I Can Remember that I’ve Read (In no particular order)
I'm only counting text books if I read the entire thing.
I'm counting books that I read more than half of, but stopped because I couldn't stomach it (Lolita) or just because I hated it(Moby Dick). I'm not counting books that are mostly pictures (The Cat in the Hat), although they are still some of my favorite books. I'm counting books twice if I read them both in English and in Spanish (or French).

I Read a Book Once - All the King's Men

All the King's Men, by Robert Penn Warren, was the best 464 pages of poetic prose about a corrupt, southern politician I've ever read.  5 stars.

========================================================================

Books I Can Remember that I’ve Read (In no particular order)
I'm only counting text books if I read the entire thing.
I'm counting books that I read more than half of, but stopped because I couldn't stomach it (Lolita) or just because I hated it(Moby Dick). I'm not counting books that are mostly pictures (The Cat in the Hat), although they are still some of my favorite books. I'm counting books twice if I read them both in English and in Spanish (or French).

Bird Count October, 2016 - Arizona and Tennessee Trips

I went to Arizona for my nephew's wedding at the beginning of the month.  I saw a curve billed thrasher and a Gila woodpecker in my parents' back yard.  We just got back from the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.  The fall is not a great birding time there, but I did see a Carolina Wren in the park and a eastern bluebird and a tufted titmouse at the Museum of Appalachia, which were new for me.  I also saw lots of black capped chickidees and a red bellied woodpecker at the museum.  That puts me over 300 and Michelle says I should take a break for about a decade.
