*This is from the first 'audience pick' I ever did. I wound up doing all of them, of course, but this (understandably) got the most votes. It is also my favorite novel. Few votes, due to the small number of LJ readers I had at the time. Pics are different now, since some of the hot-links I used then are no longer in service.*
Lolita: 3 (2 on lj, 1 in person)
Ethan Frome: 2 (1 on lj, 1 on facebook)
Breakfast at Tiffany's: 2
