It’s been one of those days

I need me a little Jane Austen.

Ah.  Better now.

  1. Great article. I loved the last line, “…He’d be deadly.” Surely he would be! I can think of several women who dream of finding this exact man in their local coffee shop right now! I don’t think my husband has ever read any of Austen’s novels, but he’s always willing to sit down to watch the films. I can’t wait to introduce my young daughters (and sons if they’ll let me) to these brilliant novels!

  2. Thank you!
    Just what I needed today too.
    I think I’ll go home and pull out one of my Jane Austen books.
    A great way to spend the weekend.

  3. Molly, I love that line too. I also love the quote about how Jane Austen is the “little black dress” of literature. Amen to that!

    Janis, glad I could inspire you on this three-day weekend! Enjoy!
