The Classics Club: #1 Dracula by Bram Stoker17:42
I have always wanted to finish reading the original text of Bram Stoker's Dracula and I was so lucky that my friend Jason mailed me a copy of Dracula in leather back *YAY*. For me Dracula will always be a romantic novel by the master of vampire literature Stoker (at least from my point of view).
P.S. I am reading a wonderful Middle Grade novel as well aka The Spook's Apprentice...
Acting on behalf of his firm of solicitors, Jonathan Harker travels to the Carpathian Mountains to finalize the sale of England's Carfax Abbey to Transylvanian noble Count Dracula. Little does he realize that, in doing so, he endangers all that he loves. For Dracula is one of the Un-Dead--a centuries-old vampire who sleeps by day and stalks by night, feasting on the blood of his helpless victims. Once on English soil, the count sets his sights on Jonathan's circle of associates, among them his beloved wife Mina. To thwart Dracula's evil designs, Jonathan and his friends will have to accept as truth the most preposterous superstitions concerning vampires, and in the company of legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, embark on an unholy adventure for which even their worst nightmares have not prepared them.First published in 1897, Bram Stoker's Dracula established the ground rules for virtually all vampire fiction written in its wake. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, decorative stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers, and an attractive addition to any home library.
