Just finished reading an anthology of the four main Sherlock Holmes novels that make up the primary canon: "A Study in Scarlet" (1887), "The Sign of the Four" (1890), "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1901), and "The Valley of Fear" (1914).  Excellent reads and so different and more clever than these stupid Robert Downey, Jr. movies. 

Now I'm finally getting around to reading Steven Adler's autobiography. 

Next up will be a biography on Eisenhower.  I'm not sure where I'll go from there but looking for any good fiction or non-fiction suggestions.

Despite not having the publicity of The Hound of the Baskervilles, I enjoyed The Valley of Fear more.

Currently reading To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf.
