How I wish I lived in a Jane Austen novel!
Do you have a favorite Mr. Darcy or Colonel Brandon? My sixteen-year-old and I disagree about which version has the best Colonel Brandon, but we do agree about Mr. Darcy. Were you wondering when I would finally get around to featuring Jane Austen art? Wonder no more!

I love this quote of Mark Twain's because I always wonder, "How many times did he read it? Wouldn't once have sufficed?":
“Every time I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone.”
