Thank you for considering smooth reading "On Time," subtitled "Bound to Get There." This 275 page book originally published in 1869 has one figure, and if you want to see this, along with more nicely formatted text, you can download the web browser, ePub, or kindle version.

This is one of many books written by Oliver Optic (a pseudonym for William T. Adams) that were directed mostly at boys. In this book, our young hero is involved in a effort to make a success of a new lake boating business. Competition includes both an old established competitor and a newly developed railroad. Much drama ensues, both on and off the water. Wikipedia notes that besides the author's experience as a teacher "extensive travel abroad and a deep knowledge of boats, farming, and practical mechanics were other factors that gave his works reality."

If you need more time to finish, just let me know, and I look forward to your comments.
