Ten months into our Twitter-based reading club, we have a first: a close race in the vote to pick our next book. In the past, our victors won by landslides; this month, the winner triumphed over the second-place title by just one vote. Very exciting, and proof of our ever-growing, ever-engaged group of followers.

We'll be reading David Copperfield by Charles Dickens in March, led by Harvard literature professor Matthew Kaiser. Discussion starts this Monday, March 5th with the hashtag #1b140_1. We'll get the full schedule out to you in the next few days. In the meantime, happy reading!
