221B Blog Street (Arts and entertainment)


MY RECOMMENDATION: YES, with reservations

AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: 221B Blog, Bufo Calvin (then click on archives for the appropriate month)


BLOG DESCRIPTION: This blog brings you the original Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes stories. In a return to serialized literature, you get one chapter a day. The material is in the public domain in countries where copyright is Life+70 or shorter. Arthur Conan Doyle died the Seventh of July, 1930. If the material is not in the public domain in your country, do not subscribe to this blog.

MY REVIEW: I feel that I deserve a medal for being able to provide you with the actual URL of this blog, it wasn't easy to find! The owner of this blog is also the publisher of the I Love My Kindle blog ( and do you think he has a link to this blog there? Well... he does...buried 2/3rds of the way down the page so no one will ever find it!

In any event, if you've got a disposable 99 cents a month, subscribe to the blog to get a chapter of a Holmes novel, or a part of a story, delivered to you each day. Now, all these stories are in the public domain and you can download them all for free, but it's nicer to read them on the Kindle...

At one point the author was also writing his own Holmes story in this blog, but it looks like he's given that up.
