The Innocents Abroad, Illustrated, V1

By: Mark Twain

Preface: This book is a record of a pleasure trip. If it were a record of a solemn scientific expedition, it would have about it that gravity, that profundity, and that impressive incomprehensibility which are so proper to works of that kind, and withal so attractive. Yet notwithstanding it is only a record of a pic?nic, it has a purpose, which is to suggest to the reader how he would be likely to see Europe and the East if he looked at them with his own eyes instead of ...

Brewster's Millions

By: George Barr Mccutcheon

Excerpt: Chapter 1. A BIRTHDAY DINNER. ?The Little Sons of the Rich? were gathered about the long table in Pettingill?s studio. There were nine of them present, besides Brewster. They were all young, more or less enterprising, hopeful, and reasonably sure of better things to come. Most of them bore names that meant something in the story of New York. Indeed, one of them had remarked, ?A man is known by the street that?s named after him,? and as he was a new member, they ...

The Clicking of Cuthbert

By: P.G. Wodehouse

Excerpt: FORE! This book marks an epoch in my literary career. It is written in blood. It is the outpouring of a soul as deeply seared by Fate?s unkindness as the pretty on the dog?leg hole of the second nine was ever seared by my iron. It is the work of a very nearly desperate man, an eighteen?handicap man who has got to look extremely slippy if he doesn't want to find himself in the twenties again. As a writer of light fiction, I have always till now been handicapped b...

Psmith in the City

By: P.G. Wodehouse

Excerpt: 1. Mr Bickersdyke Walks behind the Bowler?s Arm. Considering what a prominent figure Mr John Bickersdyke was to be in Mike Jackson?s life, it was only appropriate that he should make a dramatic entry into it. This he did by walking behind the bowler?s arm when Mike had scored ninety?eight, causing him thereby to be clean bowled by a long?hop. Psmith in the City 1 It was the last day of the Ilsworth cricket week, and the house team were struggling hard on a damag...

A Room with a View

By: E. M. Forster

The Signora had no business to do it,? said Miss Bartlett, ?no business at all. She promised us south rooms with a view close together, instead of which here are north rooms, looking into a courtyard, and a long way apart. Oh, Lucy!?
