Today I am on page 79 0f Emma! I have just past the part where Emma has Harriet refuse Robert Martin. It was so funny to read the argument between Emma and Mr. Knightly! Emma is so funny.

Also yesterday I finished Northanger Abbey. I think that Henry Tilenly is my favorite male Austen hero. He liked to tease Cathrine and treated her just like his sister, which what a gentleman ought to do. I confess I like him more than Mr.Darcy!

Till later,


  1. I don't know why, but I didn't like Northanger Abbey very much. I much prefer Emma or Persuasion.

  2. But I did like the way Henry teases Catherine like a brother :)

  3. "Badly Done, Emma! Badly Done!"'s one of the greatest lines from the movie! A&E just re-did Emma like they did Pride and Prejudice! It is fabulous. I agree with Jo, Northanger Abbey is not my favorite of Jane's books. They (A&E) also re-did Northanger Abbey which I have decided is a bit scandalous! I prefer the purity and simplicity of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma...No Yucky Stuff! By-the-By, do you think Uncle Chris will ever let me name one of our daughters Lizzy or Jane? It would be fabulous if he would! Love you!
