Lolita- yes, just because I never heard about Janet Fitch! Hm, I wonder?!

I must not quite understand how to play...because people would rather read "Gossip Girl" than Brideshead Revisited"??

If you want to get it right, you have to guess what you think others would rather read. I personally always select what I would rather read. Even if I don't get it right, it sways the scales over to the book I prefer.

I dont order to get it right you have to guess that people would want to read one thing over another? not what id rather read?

You aren't voting for what you'd rather read, but what other people would rather read. This is kinda stupid.

I love reading while taking a HS I used to try and read as many books as I could over the summer...Loved Madame Bovary, Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Dante's Inferno. One of my favorites was My Side of the Mountain. Never read Lolita but I just may need to pick that up next time I'm at the book store.

Guys, The Host is really good. Written by Meyer, but no vampires.

White Oleander is one of my favorite books! So nice to see as the "poster" for the face off ;D

It's what the majority would rather read ... which is more often than not disappointing. For example, it's clear that not many have read or heard of Sandra Cisneros.

Bella, I LOVE Lolita too! It's so funny in a kinda sad, demented way though. ('Marvolous skin, oh marvolous. Tender and tanned, not the least blemish.')

Amanda-La: I absolutely LOVED Rebecca, and I read it in the 7th grade! I hope you enjoy it, it makes me want to re-read it now that it has been mentioned!

This is so much fun - it really appeals to my nerdy English major side!

Lolita is one of my favorite books. So beautifully written. (Picnic, lightning.)

I never know if you are supposed to vote for what you like better, or what the majority like better...?

I have to disagree on a few of these, not a fan of The Virgin Suicides, but I loved Middlesex. Love the Girls guide to Hunting and fishing! haven't thought of that book in awhile!

Oh and I hated "Island of the Blue Dolphins" I voted against it every time. Sorry for the double post.

I think I must be the first person to answer some of these particular faceoffs because I'm getting 100% agree with you for a lot of them. Sure that will change soon.

What?! People would rather read Bridge to Tarabithia over Vanity Fair??? Weird.

I assumed it would involve a bunch of books I've never read but I have read a ton of those books. Not only have I read them but alot of them are my favorites. Memoirs of a Geisha, Girl with a Pearl Earring, White Oleander and I'm reading Rebecca right now.
