This is a title I know little about, so of course, I can't wait to jump in! I know that a movie came out a few years ago, but I've never seen it. I don't know about the storyline except what I am about to tell you, so now is the perfect time to jump in and enjoy.
Here is a short synopsis taken from Goodreads.com;
""Vanity Fair" is a story of two heroines--one humble, the other scheming and social-climbing--who meet in boarding school and embark on markedly different lives. Amid the swirl of London's posh ballrooms and affairs of love and war, their fortunes rise and fall. Through it all, Thackeray lampoons the shallow values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper crust. What results is a prescient look at the dogged pursuit of wealth and status--and the need for humility."
Sounds fascinating, doesn't it?

OMG!!!! I've been bound and determined to read this book THIS YEAR and I want to count it toward the Chunkster Challenge. I'm SO SO SO in.ReplyDelete
I'm in too...I've missed my other challenges due to end of the semester responsibilities so I'm all over this one!! Yay Summertime!!ReplyDelete
I'm in on this one! It'll be fun. :-DReplyDelete
I would really love to read this, but unfortunately my commitments for June won't allow me to do so. But believe me; I'd rather be reading Vanity Fair than scholarly literature about middle school students ;)ReplyDelete
I'm in. I have read about half in the past, but I'm looking forward to finishing.ReplyDelete

I'm going back and forth--but I'm pretty sure I am in as well. Will confirm for sure in a few days...ReplyDelete
I'd love to read this with your readalong!ReplyDelete
Yes! I so want to do this. I have seen an A&E version and love the humor. I'll be buying it for my Nook, so I don't have to carry around a doorstop.ReplyDelete
At the risk of over scheduling myself, I'm in. :) I started VF a long time ago but never finished it. I didn't want to put it down at the time, but was just too busy.ReplyDelete
Going to try to get the posts up on time as well. Hopefully.
I'm in. I've had this one on my TBR list for awhile. Now is a great time to read it!ReplyDelete
I'm definitely in--and looking forward to it enormously!ReplyDelete
I just got a copy of this and can't wait to re-read it as the last time I read it was around eight years ago.... I will attempt to actually finish this time!ReplyDelete
I know I am a little late in the game, but I have decided to join in on this one ... I just couldn't resist for some reason ...lol! :)ReplyDelete
Here's my halfway post:ReplyDelete
