The name of the first novel typed on a type writer was _____________________________?

Item two: Please stop putting an "e" on potato, it is wrong and does not fit. VP Quail did it and was a laughing stock. I cannot spell large words correctly, but I have no trouble with small ones.

Again it is the middle of the night and I cannot sleep.

Mitch have you tried workin' out in the afternoons, or doing a stretching routine before bed. I understand that castor oil rubbed on your feet as you go to bed will help you sleep, haven't tried it yet, but will as soon as I get the oil.

Also, a therapist friend told me that men start thinking more like women as they get older and women start thinking more like men.

Does Guttenberg putting type set on his printer count? If so, my guess would be "The Holy Bible'.

Yeah, me too mitch. My spelling is pretty bad. But my handwriting is worse; our secretary thinks my handwriting is braille.

I think you all have read this novel.~

The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

My guess is something by Mark Twain. I saw a show recently about him that said he used to stay in bed with his typewriter for days at a time writing on his stories.

Fifty fifty guess: Huck Finn

Talk to you later.

Correct, Bob; The title was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Mitch, couldn't you find it in your heart to overlook mispelled words on the forum? Many of the folks here do not have spell-check and I don't believe that anyone likes to feel that their spelling or grammar is being critiqued..we all make occasional boo-boos you know...just a thought.
