It is a large book with a margin as wide as the actual writing goes, only that in the outer margins trivia, pictures and a lot of comments from ACD are written. The red parts are the notes.
Can't wait to get my hands on it

I also did read all of them. Currently, I have them on as an audio book, wonderfully read, though it is not Ben who reads it ;-)
The large annotated versions are on my christmas list, can't wait. The reviews are raving about it anyway.

What is the annotated version?

I've read some. I've got most of them on my bookshelf waiting for my attention. I've also read The  Lost World which I really enjoyed. I hadn't read any at school or as a child so while I'm sure I would have looked at them eventually the show really inspired me to pick them up sooner, thankfully!
Such great stories!

Awesome!!! It's good to take your time with books like Sherlock I wanted to finish it quickly so I went through them really quickly and I kinda wish I hadn't But it was a wonderful read!!!

I'm reading some of the short stories at the moment. It's fun trying to solve the case before Sherlock announces it all at the end. I've got pretty close for the most part. Shame I'm not able to apply that to Reichenbach!
I also get a real kick when I read something that they have used in the show. Goes to show just how connected the writers are to the books which for me just makes it an even better show.

Awesome!! Yes, I totally love when I catch something like that. Like in the Great Game the scene where they first get the pink phone, Sherlock mentions Orange Pips I loved that!! And then the case that Mycroft wanted Sherlock to solve I loved that it had so much to do with the book!

Wow, some of you.... I must sheepishly admit I neither grew up with the stories or read them for school or devoured all at once, like some fans seem to after 're-discovering'... (I know, right? Especially after hearing Mark talk here and there about devouring them when younger and growing up with that kind of thing... must have been nice), although I must have been introduced to just a couple here and there in different forms, one or two of the 'classic' episodes, and the general gist of it from being ingrained in culture.

To answer 221B's question, I'm more like a lot of people, that always enjoyed that kind of thing, but never picked up the canon until seeing the show sparked up my interest again. Now I'm (slowly) working my way through the last couple of the story collections, having started at the beginning last summer because I wanted to know what they were like, and been intermixed with various other series and pastiches got addicted to as well. ;) I'm thinking would be nice to time it to wrap up the current few books I'm on to get back to the next collection waiting for me, 'His Last Bow', soon before the show returns, to get plunked back into the feel of it again, and brushed up on even more adventures and references by that point...

Yeah it took me a couple months to read them, I wish I had taken my time with it through. They are brilliant books and I wanted to finish them before the school year ended
