Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories: Volumes I and II - Arthur Conan Doyle

Ever since I started watching the modern Sherlock, the question has been bugging me for years: What is the name of the story where the guy gets tricked into copying the encyclopedia??

 

It was my first introduction to Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson. Years and years ago when I was in college, we read the story and then also saw the episode it was based on. For a while now, I've been scanning the titles for Sherlock Holmes stories, and none of them struck a chord. I couldn't remember!

 

And then last night, I get the wonderful idea. Why don't I just Google it? But really, will I find the story/episode by simply typing, sherlock holmes copying encyclopedia?

 

Well I'll be damned. It worked. Sure enough, "The Red Headed League" came up. I even found the episode on Amazon Instant and watched it last night for the first time in I don't know how many years.

 

Moral of the story: Google is wicked scary at how accurate it can be...
