In terms of literary merit, the only other nomination this month to equal Persuasion is Middlemarch. I'll happily reread either, but Persuasion is shorter. Classics can come in a lot of forms and I have no issue with any book on this month's list, but to dismiss Persuasion as "a dreary romance" shows you don't know whereof you write. I assume you've never read it?
