Self-Ed 9/8/08

Read this week:
Sense and Sensibility (in progress)

Comments: Anne? Anne who?

So, uh, yeah... I'm continuing my Anne hiatus. But now I'm starting in on Jane Austen, most of which I have read before. My intended re-reads are Sense and Sensibility and Mansfield Park (the only Austen novels I do not own), and Emma and Persuasion, which are the ones where I watched a movie adaptation before reading the book. So far, I'm finding Sense and Sensibility much more entertaining than I remember.

Treasure Island (in progress)

This is a good book so far, but we were a bit busy last week and I didn't get to read as much as I would've liked. I expect I will finish it this week, and am hoping to start I, Robot next.

    "Sense and Sensibility" is my favorite Jane Austen novel and "Treasure Island" was my eldest son's favorite book when he was 10. We have wonderful memories about both.
