Lovers of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy reading the twelve tales in this free Kindle edition

Kindle, as all people should know, offers a host of free books, including classics. Here is a chance to reread books that you haven't read in ages. This version of twelve of Doyle's Holmes tales is, of course, splendid, far better than watching the TV versions. Rereading the stories bring surprizes. For example, I did not know that Watson was married. I had seen speculations that he and Holmes were homosexuals, this is ok, but disproved by the second page of the first story. I also did not know - or forgot - that Holmes smoked cigars. Nor did I know that Watson had returned to practice medicine. Of course I remembered that he did not say "Elementary, my dear Watson." He said "It is simplicity itself." These and many other things reminded me that I although am no Holmes, and lack his memory, I enjoy reading about this clever thinker.
