"The Complete Sherlock Holmes" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“The Complete Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

When I graduated from high school, my parents gave me a very nice graduation party.  Friends and relatives arrived and I received a lot of nice gifts and good wishes.

One gift stood out, though.  Keresztapa (my mother’s Godfather.  Keresztapa means Godfather in Hungarian) gave me the complete set of Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Keresztapa explained that when he first arrived in America, these were the books he read that helped him learn the English language.

This was a wonderful gift! I devoured the books loving each and every story!  And, as you can see from the picture at left, I still have the books in my collection.  And I still revisit these stories either in the books I have on my shelf or simply by booting up my Kindle.

If you own a Kindle, all these stories are free to download on Project Gutenberg.  Many are available for free on amazon.com.  The entire collection can be purchased for Kindle on amazon.com starting at .99.

But, get a nice hardbound edition.  And, it makes a nice gift that the receipient will treasure for a long time. Trust me.
