I can just imagine someone with a love for Jane Eyre trying
to teach P&P or Emma in the same vein!! Yuk! Both are
great books, but they just have so little in common. I am
surprised you managed to crawl out from under the blackness
and appreciate Austen after all!
But, all that does not mean that I'm not counting the
minutes until JE is on this month...two more weeks!
