I'm looking for something new to read.

I Just finished reading Stephen King's Elevation. It was really good imo. I know many people hate it for not being spooky, but I think its worth it. It can be read in less than a day since its only about 150 pages. My next read will be the ghost adventure club written by Arin Hanson from game grumps. After that I am at a loss.

Read Around The World In 80 Days. Best short book I’ve ever read, period, not to mention being my favourite adventure book. It’s also only about 150 pages. Every chapter ends on a little cliff hanger, so it’s easy to read through in no time.

Also this is the /lit/ thread, https://www.ponychan.net/oat/res/41918898+50.html

Were you reading an abridged kids' edition?

My Penguin Classics edition is 245 pages. On the short side, but not excessively so. Personally, Journey to the Center of the Earth has always been my favorite of Verne's. It's such a shame, there's never been a good movie version.

As far as Victorian and Edwardian period classics go, I'm reading Captains Courageous by Kipling. It's a great read, and has very little racism or colonial paternalist condescension, unlike most of Mr. "White Man's Burden's" works.

My all-time favorite, though, would be The Wind in the Willows. It's my boot up the ass of anyone who thinks The Piper at the Gates of Dawn refers to Pink Floyd.

Same as the wankers who automatically associate the Rime of the Ancient Mariner with Metallica.

Just checked, the abridged kids edition is only 64 words, mines is 164, but the words themselves are really small, which would explain the difference is yours are much bigger.

>It's such a shame, there's never been a good movie version.

I think this was the film I watched and I really enjoyed it, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_to_the_Center_of_the_Earth_(1959_film). Although I watched it a long time ago, so it may not be as good as I remember.

>Captains Courageous by Kipling

I’ve been thinking of reaching Kim for awhile, but I’ve never got around to. Especially considering that the last Edwardian adventure-like book I read (quarter read) was absolutely terrible, Lord Jim, it might take awhile for me to get around to it, although my physical copies are dwindling because of the lockdown, so I will get to it at some point.

>The Wind in the Willows

Haven’t read it unfortunately.

>>42122507
Apparently not. As I said the words are just very smol, so you could easily bump it up 81 pages by slightly adjusting the font, like font 8 to 13.

Doesn’t everyone do that?

Also I’m away to bed. It’s way too late.

Goodnight!

Why’d you spell goodnight like “good night”?
