I love to read. I don't usually say much about it on the blog, but it's true, I have often neglected my dear sweet children just to finish an enthralling book. Have I mentioned before that I can either have a clean house, I can quilt, or I can read. I tend to go in phases.
Jane Austen is my favorite author. I have read all the books she wrote, visited two of her homes, seen all the movie adapted from her books, own quite a few of said movies, and read several "sequels" to her books written by others. I would look at the sentence I just wrote and think I was a little obsessive, if I didn't know that several other people have done the same!
Therefore, my curiosity was piqued when Elliott linked an article about this book into his Google Reader "shared" items.
It is definitely going into my cart! Scrolling down the page, I also came upon a discussion of Jane Austen sequels, and was happy to find more that I haven't heard of. I'm still working my way through Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era. It's a great book, but at 900-something pages and lots of facts, it does take a little longer than the average fluffy novel.
Dear Fluffy Novels,
Don't worry, it won't be long until we are reunited, especially those of you who are based on Ms. Austen's books.
Your devoted reader,
