MamaChristy said...

Thanks for posting the answers, Julie. Yes, Lolita was a good book, thought it took me a while to realize that I wasn't really reading anything dirty. After all I'd heard, I kind of thought it would be smut but then I remembered that it's considered a classic. There is classic smut, I suppose, but I think that's a little different. I haven't seen the movie either and I'm afraid that it can't be as good as the book. Perhaps I'll get around to renting it one day.
