Summer is here, the poll is closed and my summer doorstop tome is decided: I’ll be reading Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. Becky Sharp triumphed over Don Quixote by a whisker but that’s what you’d expect from her, isn’t it?
Thanks everyone for voting — and special thanks for choosing a book that I imagine is available for cheap or free in ebook edition, thus making its tome-ishness easier to handle. I’ll be reporting back once I’ve read it — and I’ll resist watching the Mira Nair film adaptation, starring Reese Witherspoon, till I’m done.
Happy summer reading, everyone! And speaking of summer reading, we have programs at the Key West Library this year, for children and, for the second year running, for adults. So stop by, pick up a reading log and get your read on.
