I've been determined to read Emma with you all because it's one of the only JA books I've been unable to read alone. I'm trying to like her, I really am.
However, I've seen Emma2 a few times now (I confess myself a JN drooler) and find my memory of the film clouding my reading. Anyone have any hints as to how to avoid skimming through the dialogue which is so familiar to me?
Also, I've been a little absent lately and have not really noticed much discussion on the book. How is everyone doing? What do you all think of JA's inclusion of John Knightley as the young curmudgeon?
