I haven't read any Trollope in years, but I always liked him, more than Dickens. I'm hoping this one is fun.

Well, The American Senator has won! I personally voted for it as I've read little of Trollope outside of The Palliser sequence.

ahem... I've read NO Trollope ever

I noticed that it is available free from the Amazon Kindle Store--both in the UK and .com I've glanced through it and it divides the book into its component volumes and seems reasonably well formatted with a good TOC for navigation.
Kobo also has a free version (Gutenberg), but after a quick glance the TOC does not look that good.

Maybe you'll be so enamored you'll proceed to gobble the Palliser and Barsetshire novels!

The Manybooks epub edition looks clean with a working TOC.

The American Senator it is! So, are we trollops for reading Trollope?

I'll have the discussion thread up a little later.

I've been thinking it - but I didn't think anyone was actually going to write it.

Not Anthony but maybe Joanna with her "Aga sagas"?

Actually I quite enjoy them when I want to read something light.

I have been wanting to read Trollope for awhile, although I had Barchester Chronicles on my TBR list, so I am looking forward to this month's selection. However I have been very busy at work and traveling in the UK so I still haven't read April's book!

So am I. Two cataract surgeries intervened, although I seemed to be able to read a couple of other books and Chess Story just fine. I trust we will both eventually complete the Andes journey.

I imagine being able to make the font bigger if needed is a blessing with such eye problems.

I'm still working on March too. Nearly there... I hope you are recovering well. My mom just had cataract surgery on one eye recently, and she decided to move the other eye to later since it's taking longer than she expected to heal.

I hope your eyes recover quickly and your new improved vision really helps.

Cataract surgery can result in excellent improvement. My Aunt found that she could see and read with far less effort and techniques have improved so much since then.
