After a great first month reading Middlemarch by George Eliot, our Twitter Book Club has overwhelmingly voted to continue through the end of May. This month will also feature a series of live Twitter parties. We're excited about upcoming conversations with My Life in Middlemarch author Rebecca Mead and Middlemarch for Book Clubs creator Rohan Maitzen.
All month, readers on Twitter have shared a wonderful trade in Eliot's exquisite one-liners. Here are some of the best:
"There had risen before her the girl’s vision of a possible future for herself to which she looked forward with trembling hope, and she wanted to wander on in that visionary future without interruption." (shared by Lor)
