may 22nd was Sir Arthur Conan Doyles Birthday.. so in honor of one of the greatest detective novelists of all time - how about a little tribute post to honor his very famous literary characters.
Not only do i highly recommend you read the original collection of stories - but also don't be afraid to pick up the very entertaining sherlockian by graham moore - i also fully endorse the BBCs new take on the detective in their new series 'sherlock' where sherlock holmes lives in current day london with roommate watson... there have also been a few computer games over the years - all of which are great...
regardless of how you choose to celebrate, the items above will help you solve the case
