Mark Twain #1 on Amazon

The Auto­bi­og­ra­phy of Mark Twain (Vol. 1) hit the stands just yes­ter­day, and already it stands atop the Ama­zon best­seller list, leapfrog­ging past Stieg Lars­son, Bill Bryson, Jon Stew­art, and even the lat­est, sup­pos­ed­ly great­est Amer­i­can nov­el­ist, Jonathan Franzen. Although he died a cen­tu­ry again, Twain has still got it.

The 766 page auto­bi­og­ra­phy pub­lished by UC Press runs $18.99 in hard­cov­er on Ama­zon, and the Kin­dle ver­sion a far cool­er $9.99. You can read excerpts in PDF for­mat here and here. Mean­while you can also find free ver­sions of Twain’s clas­sics – Adven­tures of Huck­le­ber­ry Finn and Tom Sawyer – in our col­lec­tions of Free Audio Books and Free eBooks.
