Miss Italy and Miss Austen

Here, in Brazil, we used to make a joke saying that the candidates to Miss Brasil and Miss Universe should read The Little Prince by Saint-Exupéry.

Now, in Italy, the rules specify that the girls should read one newspaper a day and at least three books per year (LOL) and suggest Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, and Pride and Prejudice by our dear Jane!

I'm happy to see that Jane made the list. You have all three novels on hand for the picture, very impressive.
