On Sherlock Holmes
I became obsessed with watching Sherlock recently. About halfway through, I decided that I needed to read the actual books, because I almost always read the book first before watching something. So, I checked out a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories. I have a new fondness for the obsessive, slightly insane detective and his admirable sidekick, Dr. Watson. I never guess how a mystery is going to turn out, no matter how hard I try, but that just makes me admire Holmes more.
My favorite stories are The Speckled Band and A Study in Scarlet. The collection I checked out of the library was very nice and included some good stories, but there weren't very many stories, so I'm going to look for a nice fat collection of Sherlock Holmes.
