As summer officially winds down next week (I'm old-school enough to keep "summer" as the time between Memorial Day and Labor Day and out of the sprawl of longer school years), I've decided to group some of the reviews of books I read into one, themed week. That would be Adventure Week, a place to review and write about some classic adventure tales that most kids read when they're ten yet I waited until I was forty.
Here's the run down, in chronological order with the fourth book a mystery until next Friday's Forgotten Books Project resumes.
Tuesday - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870)
Wednesday - Treasure Island (1873)
Thursday - King Solomon's Mines (1875)
Friday - (Tune in to find out. You're only clue, unless I mentioned it in a previous post and I've forgotten it, is that it was published after 1875.)
If you think you know the answer, leave your guess in the comments of this post. As to the winner, as of right now, I have no prize other than the knowledge that you guessed correctly. I could offer you a free subscription to this blog but, since it's already free, well, you know...
So, tune in next week and join the discussion of some classic pulp adventure tales. I had a lot of fun reading them--some more than others--and I look forward to reading everyone's comments.
