The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

I'd just like to add that Sherlock Holmes is well-known for his incredible deductions skills, however this is a falsity. It is much more occurent in the The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes that Sir Conan Doyle employs the use of Induction, not Deduction, in his main character Sherlock Holmes. The difference is that deduction is drawing two points of fact to draw a conclusion; however, Sherlock Holmes often induces based on fact and experience to surmise conclusions. If you read some of the most famous of Sherlock Holmes quotes, you will notice this pattern.

Thank you, I just needed to point that out. Bar none best detective novel you can read. It left an indelible impression on me, as a student.

The Wendigo

by Algernon Blackwood

This is hair raising horror a la E.A. Poe - no blood and gore, just that bone chilling fear of knowing their is a presence of something terrible just beyond the trees...

The Brethren

by H. Rider Haggard

This is a great book! Sadly, it ends like Allan Quartermain...very wrenching.

The Bible

by Anonymous

Good for a laugh or to see how bronze-age civilizations explained that which was beyond their ken. Just keep it away from the children; it's full of sex, violence, and many negative and repressive ideas that, unless explained as a myth, could corrupt and warp weak, impressionable minds.
