Instead of using a book cover, which of course I'm reading the book, I thought I'd post this pic of the hottest Captain Wentworth. I'm into it at least 7 chapters. I've seen both film adaptations and I really liked them both. My little book club has started with Persuasion. What I enjoy is already being able to picture the characters as I read the book. Now I have an excellent imagination, but seriously, can you imagine a better Captain Wentworth than Rupert Penry-Jones? I can't.
Anne speaks very rarely while everyone else has these long conversations about things. Obviously, Miss Austen wants to point out to us the vanity of Anne's father and sisters. That's all I have so far. I'm still digging in. Stay tuned...

Beautiful Edition

Miss Jane's complete completed works. I own a paperback that has her uncompleted works, but this was too pretty. So I bought it. My copy doesn't have the gold in the middle of the oval. The title is in gold, and actually looks even prettier than this one.

Other Great Books

For the Pride & Prejudice crowd. I found these books to be a great addition to the P&P story.

I felt that Amanda Grange did a wonderful job with this book and I plan to thoroughly enjoy all of her other 'diaries'. Especially Captain Wentworth's (wink, wink).


I also enjoyed Helen Halstead's take on what came next in the story of the Bennet's, Bingley's and Darcy's.

A New, Used Book for my Austen Library

I'll admit, the front illustration is cute. I tried to start this book last night, but I was too exhausted to concentrate. I am excited to dig in when I get my brain back from my mom. Her writing class was last night, and she was using our brain all day yesterday to finish her writing project. Maybe I'll get it back for the weekend and I can get some quality writing in. Oh! this also came in the mail for me this week!

Every true Janeite needs a pose-able Jane action figure! The best deal being at Amazon.
