Have you guys heard about this? Guillermo, can you even see PBS there? They are doing this show where, as I understand it, the public will vote on America's favorite book. They have some list of 100 books, which you can find here: http://www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read/books/#/. I'm not sure if these are the only candidates or how they came up with that list. There will be a tv special on, I think, May 20.
I've read 34 books from this list and seen four or five films based on other books. There are quite a few books I wouldn't even consider reading. My favorite book on the list is Wuthering Heights.
It's really hard for me to pick a favorite book. If you put a gun to my head, I'd be like that guy on the bridge in monte python and the holy grail. Madame Bovary, No! Wuthering Heights. Aaaaaaaaaah!
