Absolutely every time, without fail, I see The Jane Austen Book Club, I want to read all of the books in the order that they read them in.
Now, I can’t really do that because I’m reading Sense and Sensibility for one of my book clubs this month, and that’s one of the last books they read, and there’s no way I could read them all this month before I made it back to Sense and Sensibility. But I did watch the movie last night, and it’s renewed the sense in me to read all of the books. Now, I haven’t read all of Jane Austen yet. I’ve read Pride and Prejudice (I’d have given you permission to hang me if I hadn’t), as well as Northanger Abbey, but it’s been awhile. I want to read them all together. I feel like there might be a certain amount of… what’s the word… I can’t think of the word, but good feelings is the general idea. Anyway, I’m working these books into my impossible schedule. It’s happening.
