    Literature now.

    I have been a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes for years, both the books and the adaptions for small and big screen. Everything from the early Basil Rathbone films, through Jeremy Brett (the best of the lot) and even the modern update with Benedict Cumberbatch. I gloss over Robert Downey Jnr's 'contribution' to the role.

    Anyway, here is a tale set at Christmas:

    You can also listen to the LibriVox recording of this here as well if you prefer. Along with things like Project Gutenburg, there really has never been a time when, providing you have the technology to access it, you can get access to so many classic works for nothing.
