"The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas. This will probably take me a little bit longer to read than the Elmore Leonard book.
Funny you should mention ERB, doc. 2010 is shaping up to be the "Year of Tarzan" for me: comic strips, comic books, movies and novels. Over the weekend I moved on from "The Beasts of Tarzan" to "The Son of Tarzan," and although I've read them (once) before, I've forgotten so many of the details that they're like new to me. I'm supplementing my reading with Phillip Jose Farmer's Tarzan Alive! so I can simultaneously learn what "really" happened.
