I noticed that you have The Regency Repository on
your Links.I got the address from another site The Regency
Homepage on aol.I like this site for many reasons one of
which is that there is a link to a site on Gothic novels.
At this site you can jump to the text of one of the "horrid"
novels on the reading list that Isabella Thorpe gave Cather-
ine Morland in "Northanger Abbey".This is the one entitled
"The Castle of Wolfenbach".I printed it out and read it I
believe that I will read it again.As to the "reading list",
did you know that JA.mentions in one of the earlier letters
of her father reading another of those "horrid"books:"The
Midnight Bell"?I would imagine that when she originally be-
gan what was then known as"Susan" JA.had probably read at
least some of these and decided that they would fit just
such a reading list from just such a person as Isabella
Thank you very much,
