      Jillian, I believe Nooks use the ePub format that is also used by Kobo, so I think you would be able to download the free ePub version from Kobo and (probably using Adobe Digital Editions, also free) transfer it to your Nook. The book is DRM-free.

        Okay, thanks. I’m afraid I can never figure out how to do that. I only know how to download directly from Barnes & Noble, but maybe I can figure it out. 🙂 Thanks!

    I’m planning on reading MIDDLEMARCH. Who would you most closely compare George Eliot’s prose style to? For example, Virginia Wolfe? Sameul Butler? Henry James? D. H. Lawrance. All opinions welcome!

    • Rohan Maitzen says:

      Interesting question! I would say certainly not Woolf, occasionally James (in his early years), not Lawrence. In some respects her prose is much more straightforward that some of her contemporaries (less quirky than Dickens’s, for instance) but it is more deliberate and intellectual than, say, the first-person narratives of Charlotte Bronte. Maybe Trollope is stylistically closest, but the substance of his novels is simpler. I wonder what other people might reply to this question!

      • Elspeth Flood says:

        I would agree with Trollope – but there is only one George Eliot. Perhaps Austen – certainly she has the consistently ironic voice of Austen, but not the economy of words! And Austen never tried multiple storylines.
