We are going to have one thread for each book as now Goodreads has made a spoiler tag that you can use to put before anything that is a spoiler. Use your discretion as to what would be a pretty big spoiler and label it. Please put up to what page the spoiler is for.
To create the tag simply do this:
< spoiler> Blah blah blah spoilery stuff < /spoiler>
*Take out the spaces in both of the spoiler tag.
It will look like this:
[This is a spoiler. Spoilers should be labeled so you don't ruin books for others.

I downloaded Treasure Island on my Kindle the other day for free. The library is out of copies. Apparently, a teacher assigned it for summer reading to her class. You may find the link
to download it for yourself. :)

I read this a little while ago for the first time. I can't believe I never read it when I was younger. I don't remember having watched the movie either. I felt it was a bit predictable and a very quick fun read.

To stretch out from the book a little... What do others think about how the black spot from the beginning of Treasure Island was used in Pirates of the Caribbean but totally extremed up? It always fascinated me.

I just downloaded an e-book of this from a free site. However, its only showing up as 156 pgs. I don't think I have a YA version, the language seems like its the adult one, but idk. How long are you all's versions running?

So I listened to the Librivox audiobook of Treasure Island while working and I really really enjoyed it. It's possible that some of the dragged out parts that Sarah mentioned didn't stand out to me much sine I was at work and just listening while I did other things.
Overall I loved how a lot of the chapters would end on little cliff-hangers and Black Beard was such an awesome character, I'm sad it took me so long to find him :)
