Most of the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are available from libraries, the Google Books Project, Project Gutenburg, and free ebook formats, however, there’s nothing like owning your own copies to annotate and re-read. Barnes & Nobles offers a Complete Sherlock Holmes volume bound in a leather-like finish which is lovely to have on the shelf (although a bit heavy to carry around in a bag).
