Mere Plodders in the reading stakes?

Perhaps some copies of How to Read a Novel by John Sutherland should be dispatched to the House of Commons after it turns out that some MPs are taking an awful long time to read something as page-turningly easy as Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code according to an article by John Ezard in today's Guardian. It turns out the blockbuster is number one on MP's summer reading lists according to Waterstones, the same title was also number one last year. They say a week is a long time in politics but obviously not in the business of turning pages in a novel.
