Jane Austen, A to Z: Sense and Sensibility

I bought the book, Sense and Sensibility. I probably read about 1/4 of it before I switched to the audiobook. Thank goodness for Librivox.

Jane Austen, A to Z: Pride and Prejudice

I have to confess that I had never read Pride and Prejudice before. Ever. It was never assigned reading in college – not even in the Victorian novel class. So last night, I finished reading it. It took a bit longer than I expected to become emotionally involved with the story. Some people seem toContinue reading “Jane Austen, A to Z: Pride and Prejudice”

Jane Austen, A to Z: Northanger Abbey
