Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Another Holmes Story Under My Belt

The Adventures of Wisteria Lodge by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
(Mystery lovers)
This is a longer short story of Sherlock Holmes.  It was actually written in a two-part series but can be read in one long sitting.  I very much liked this story primarily because of the introduction of Inspector Baynes.  Baynes is one of the only characters from the police force that matches Sherlock Holmes on investigative skills.  It is different from other Holmes stories because the famous detective doesn't actually solve anything; rather, he just watches the falling out of the crime and follows Baynes's working of the case.  Probably one for Holmes's fans and not a great introduction to the famous detective.
