Enjoy. Have fun trying to visualize the man on a surfboard. In my mind he's wearing one of those old school wool style swim suits and still smoking his pipe. Have you read his essay about learning to ride a bike? Hysterical!

pretty good book. I actually preferred "Life on the Mississippi" you should give that a go next.

The writing so far is key-lassic;

"he just then got up a fearful convulsion of his countenance which was suggestive of a wink being swallowed by an earthquake, we guessed that his remark was intended to be facetious"

You can't really beat Twain. He was truly a master of the English language.

Maybe I'm just cheap but I'm excited at the prospect of free Kindle books. So many classics, so little time...
