I'm working on it

I'm still working my way through Old Friends and New Fancies. It is kind of fun how all the 'leftover' characters from Miss Jane's works have found their way to Bath and are enjoying each other's company. This first ever sequel, being written in 1913, is well written in the style of Jane Austen without having modern overtures flung upon it.

Sounds good. I may have to pick that one up. I'm currently reading a non-Austen book, "The Geurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society." I'm liking it so far, it's written in the style of letters, like "Lady Susan."

I have this book and for some reason have never made it all the way through. I suppose I will have to give it another try.

Today I had it out as the comparison of Thicker and Thinner for my sons kindergarten homeschool lessons so it is funny I came across this today.
