Eve’s Diary is a comic short story by Mark Twain. It was first published in the 1905 Christmas issue of the magazine Harper’s Bazaar, and in book format in June 1906 by Harper and Brothers publishing house. It is written in the style of a diary kept by the first woman in the Judeao-Christian creation story, Eve, and is claimed to be “translated from the original manuscript”. It is one of a series of books Twain wrote concerning the story of Adam and Eve, including ‘Extracts from Adam’s Diary,’ ‘That Day In Eden,’ ‘Eve Speaks,’ ‘Adam’s Soliloquy,’ and the ‘Autobiography of Eve.’ Eve’s Diary has a lighter, sweeter, more comedic tone than the others in the series.

Google Giggle Hangout with Narrator, Cris Dukehart
I’m a mildly obsessed reader and book collector. I love to read romance, PNR, UF and science fiction and talk about books that I adore. I’m into pin up and rockabilly. I blog and review books and vlog about them too on my site. Oh! something I’m pretty dang proud of at The Book Tart… because of my obsession with books I like to know WHEN new books are released so I had a database created to show books by date and make a wish list. I share so you can use it too and view the 4000 + fiction new releases in every month by their book birthday http://www.thebooktart.com/new-fiction-release/
