Is it just me, or was Sherlock Holmes DESIGNED to have a reading kit? Putting this thing together was a breeze, you guys. I’ve made easy kits before, but seriously—I chose all the items for this one in under 20 minutes. It practically made itself! Maybe it’s the iconic imagery (pipes! deerstalkers! magnifying glasses!), or maybe it’s just the fact that there are so many Sherlock fans out there making awesome stuff. Either way, I’ve pretty much decided that this is already in my top 5 favorite reading kits. Enjoy! 🙂


What would I include in a Sherlock Holmes reading kit? I’m so glad you asked…

Enough tea to get you through ALL your cases

These all have quotes from different Sherlock Holmes cases! * cue fan girl squeal *

And something to drink it from, of course

This awesome phone case.

Book phone /iPhone flip Wallet case- Sherlock Holmes for iPhone 6, 6 plus, 5, 5s, 5c, 4, 4s- Samsung Galaxy S6, S5 S4 S3, Note 3, 4 SONY, LG
The woman who makes these came to my local comic con this year, and it took all my willpower not to buy every single one of her cases.

A book pillow for cuddling up with while you read

I have this pillow! It’s a great impromptu napping buddy.

And of course you’ll need light to read by.

What’s a Sherlock reading binge without a deerstalker?

…or a pipe, for that matter?

P.S. How can this NOT be the coolest pipe anyone has ever seen?

Don’t forget your magnifying glass!


And a beautiful hardcover copy of every single Holmes adventure ever.

  1. Because I’m not familiar with London, I’d get a printout of an old Victorian map of the city to refer to – something like this


    And of course a beautiful bookmark like this one to mark my reading spot!
