I do not teach any Doyle, and the only thing I've really read in the past was The Hound of the Baskervilles.
I sat down with the book and didn't really know what to expect. I thought back to our trip to Scotland as I opened the book. I walked a lit tour that included where Doyle spent a lot of his time. From the second page of the book I was hooked. I LOVE it! Holmes' character is so great and funny. The book is really easy to read, because it is a collection of short stories. It is so relaxing to just read for fun. I really hope by having this time in class for my students to read, they will develop this life-long love for reading.
