The Kindle version I just downloaded is saying 134 pages or 24 chapters, which is shorter than I expected, so just hoping I didn't download an abridged version!!!
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Oddly, I never did read Frankenstein.  I recall she wrote Frankenstein at some period where she was hanging out with other authors include Lord Byron.  I just never moved off Lord Byron.  Why not.  Since it is a classic, Ninja doesn't have to dig up links as you can pretty much find the public domain version anywhere on-line.  I had it via iBooks before my last sync screwed up all of my books and music. 

I will draw the line at the Iliad or the Odyssey though.  While I love Greek mythology, I just cannot do either or those books.  I would rather re-read any Shakespeare play in the original Middle English.  And, yes, I do happen to own a hardback version of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare in Middle English. ???

Frankenstein downloaded and waiting.

My paperback copy of Dracula has been read so many times, the glue came apart at the spine, the pages are crumbling and it is all held together by a rubber band. Appropriate, I'd say.

First off hi everyone! I was wondering if I could join your club. Not sure if anyone read the series yet but "the mortal instruments" by Cassandra Clare and "the infernal devices" I think that was the prequels name were awesome. I love her writing style. If you've seen the movie please don't judge by that it was completely different

I'm totally late to this party, and it's sort of off topic, but I have a first edition Old Man and the Sea. This photo was obviously staged for another purpose.

I still read it digitally instead of mauling the pages. ;)

1st edition?  And you didn't prop a moleskine against it for the photo?  Sacrilege! 

It is a nicely set shot though.   :)
