"Squire Trelawney, Dr. Livesey, and the rest of these gentlemen having asked me to write down the whole particulars about Treasure Island, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the island, and that only because there is still treasure not yet lifted, I take up my pen in the year of grace 17_ and go back in time when my father kept the Admiral Benbow inn and the brown old seaman with the sabre cut first took up his lodging under our roof."
Robert Louis Stevenson – Treasure Island
Yep, reading Treasure Island. I think I read it as a kid. Think I read Kidnapped as well. Fun to read again. It is free on Amazon and I'm in cost cutting mode for books. Working out just how many free books I have to read before the Kindle is completely paid for and I start seeing a significant return on my investment. Still, the first line, filled with information AND you want to read further!
