The Count of Monte Cristo Comes Home


Look what I found in all its 1400 page glory for a mere .75 cents at the thrift store. It measures in at a full 2.5 inches thick and I'm guessing it weighs about 2lbs. So, is this worth devoting the time and lugging around effort to read it?

I love how you actually measured it :)

Don't tell...but...I've never read it. *shhhh*

I don't have many chunksters like this under my belt either. Maybe now that it's on my TBR shelf, though . . .

I have a second hand copy too. It's been sitting on my shelf for about three years ...

It's not quite as thick as yours but the writing is tiny!

Ummmm....I'd say just the picture on the cover makes it worth it..

yummmmmmm....!

Looking forward to seeing you!!

When do u arrive?

My show is SAT night so be sure to save it for me!

Just call when you get in.

tiny library - this one may also stay on my shelf for . . . a while. And, yes, part of the reason it's so big -and that I finally decided to bring it home- is that it has nice wide spacing and big font. My eyes aren't what they used to be.

nomad - the cover is gorgeous, isn't it? A bientot! (you'll have to imagine the accents as my keyboard is not cooperating lol)
