Future Reading

I had so much fun reading History of My Life, I will soon take on another extended reading project. Not quite as many pages as Casanova's memoirs, but probably enough to keep me reading for at least a month.

"Greed, gold-digging and deception sit at the heart of "Vanity Fair." It's no joke that it's subtitled "a novel without a hero" -- William Makepeace Thackeray mercilessly skewered the pretentions and flaws of the upper class all throughout it. The result is a gloriously witty social satire."

Now that's my kind of story.
