I haven't been reading doorstops lately. Just one look at these books, with their thick spines and pages running to more than 600 pages or so, is enough to make me feel all cringe-y.
But this year, the book club has chosen The Count of Monte Cristo as its book for June. Now, dear reader, I have yet to read a novel by Dumas, and I've heard several bibliophiles mention that this book as a favorite. This got me to thinking: I might as well read the unabridged edition, no?
So bring on those 1,000 pages! I could surely use a challenge, not to mention lots of caffeine.
