I'm a guy who likes to read novels or books but don't do it, I prefer watching TV or surfing the net rather than reading. 6 months ago my friend suggested me a novel called The Beach House by James Patterson, I started reading it and reached chap. 28 (it's about 100 chaps.), but then I got busy because of studying and stopped reading it,
the problem is that I don't get into the reading mood a lot, however I like to read, I like people who like to read a lot, I want to be like them.
and I prefer novels that took time in the 16th or 17th century written in British English, like Sherlock Holmes,
so I need some advice on how I can get myself to read more, and if you can suggest stories or novels I should read.
thanks in advance

.. you do know that Sherlock Holmes was written, and set, in the 19th Century.
Why not try some shorter novels; that way you'll still be reading, but it'll be easier for you to finish a story, and get back into reading - sometimes life just gets in the way of things like that.
Maybe try some of Maurice Leblanc's work. His Arsène Lupin series in particular.1
