Things have changed considerably since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published his first Sherlock Holmes story. While hard cover tombs are still readily available, they were joined on bookshelves by the “modern” method of book publishing, the paper back novel. Things have progressed even further and nowadays, books are also available in audio format on CDs and  for download in a format for your Kindle (the electronic reading device) and in Preloaded Digital Audio Players .

I believe that Conan Doyle would applaud these advances and I think it allows more people to enjoy the tales of Sherlock Holmes in whichever format suits them.
