This says a lot about me! The four books that I have beside my computer ALL THE TIME for reference are:

Sherlock Holmes Canon (56 short stories and 4 novellas)
William Shakespeare - Complete Works
Holy Bible - King James Version
Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus

I also have four permanent reference books beside me:

Oxford dictionary
Oxford thesaurus
Complete works of SH
Russian/English dictionary.

I use the thesaurus the most these days. Am always trying to improve my vocabulary! But actually for general reference am using online sources constantly for a myriad of reasons. Can't imagine life without Google! :-)

So we basically have almost exactly the same reference books! How uncanny.

As you know, I too use Google and Wikipedia etc all the time. If nothing else, it is so much easier to copy paste things!

By the way, that Sherlock icon/avatar of yours is one of my favourites EVER!

Thank you. One can never have enough Sherlock icons... :-) This one was a simple crop from a screen capture – absolutely no wizardry required!
