— -- Calling all book lovers!

A farm of Mark Twain's, sitting on more than 18 acres outside of Redding, Connecticut, is now on sale.

It's called "Jean’s Farm" as the bestselling author, whose birth name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, bought the property for the youngest of his three daughters, Jane "Jean" Clemens. It sits next to the farm where he lived for two years, from 1908 until his death in 1910, called Stormfield.
