In honor of Sir Arthur COnan Doyle’s 149th birthday, I suggest you read a Sherlock Holmes short story or two. A couple of my favorites are The Adventure of the Speckled Band and The Adventure of the Dancing Men. I suspect most of you went through a Sherlock Holmes phase at some point. If you didn’t, do yourself a favor and read these stories. After these two, you’ll be hooked. And even if you have read them, it’s probably been years. Do yourself a favor and read them again. They are no less brilliant the second time around. Conan Doyle rocks.
