56 Sherlock Holmes Stories in 56 Days

Think of a routine that at some point in your life you tried to stick to. A few minutes a day - how long did you manage to keep it going? Here’s a challenge. How about from tomorrow every day you have to read one of the 56 stories from the Sherlock Holmes canon, and then you have to write your review of it on your blog. No chance eh?

That’s the astonishing challenge that Charlotte Walters took on (on top of a day job) last year to celebrate the launch of her debut novel ‘Barefoot on Baker Street’.

This fascinating book brings together the 56 reviews (plus four extra reviews of the novels from the canon) and shares some analysis on which stories are the best. 

We have a lot to thank Charlotte for. The challenge she took on prompted us to launch The Great Sherlock Holmes Debates, the first of which took place on the last day of her challenge and resulted in more than 20 million fan pages on the web. There  have been two more debates since featuring the great and the good of the Holmes world and fans from more than 30 countries.

The other thing Charlotte should take credit for is that the royalties from this book go to the Save Undershaw campaign - to preserve Conan Doyle’s home for future generations of Holmes fans.

In the top ten true Holmes fans in the world Charlotte rides near the top.

56 Sherlock Holmes Stories in 56 Days is available from all good bookstores including in the USA Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and also now in ebook format including Amazon Kindle and iPad format.
