... at The Inner Minx: Get your Jilly Cooper out and wave it in the air!! I do not object to The Da Vinci Code because it is trash. I don't think it rises to that level. A good, entertaining, diverting book is not trash, in my view. Every book doesn't need to be Anna Karenina - which has some distinctly trashy qualities to it, by the way. I'd rather read unpretentious "trash" than pretentious "literature."
