Reading Dracula has long been on my list of things to do. I loved The Historian, I read vampire books by the bushel, and I’ve heard time and time again that Dracula is a book celebrating technology and gadgets (admittedly, it’s “shorthand” and “typewriters”, but those were the texting and iPhones of their time). My nook came pre-stocked with a free version of the book, but even then (and I hate to admit it) my deep aversion to epistolary novels held me back. I just can’t get excited about a book told after the fact, through snatches of diaries and letters. I want action; I want immediacy! Every once in awhile I can push myself past the initial dislike, but that requires me to be trapped in scenarios involving desert islands (or family trips) with no other books in sight.
