Considering that I thought nothing in the romance category would interest me I find myself surprised at being in a quandary over how to vote. I too hate this hidden polling and having to fly blind as to what potential selections that do have some appeal to me may actually have a chance at winning.
There is the out-of-left-field choice of Ripping the Bodice
; I just can't get that expression out of my mind.
Unfortunately I can't see going to the extent of actually buying it and it is not available from my library system, even in paper.
The Age of Innocence
is on my list of books to read sometime in 2012 so that's its great advantage if I thought it would win.
Then there is Tender is the Night
and it seems to be really in the running as far as can be discerned from comments. I would not mind reading another book by Fitzgerald.
I figure has not chance and the others really do not do anything for me. One read of Tropic of Cancer
in a college literature class many years ago is sufficient.
