Here is a little holding post while I finish reading Vanity Fair, (William Makepeace Thackeray) which I mentioned in a previous post as a future TBR Pile target. I haven’t seen any filmed versions of the book but I thought I’d watch this 2004 film with Reese Witherspoon once I have digested the original story. I have a feeling that the BBC did a series a few years ago but I haven’t checked yet.
I am over half-way through and really enjoying the book, though I could do with an edition that has notes to explain some of the references that nineteenth century readers would have easily understood. Look out for a more detailed post soon!
