Anyway, someone was passing around a survey of 100 Well Known mostly-Classical books you've read on Facebook and I was only able to mark about 30 of the listed books and none of the Jane Austen and I decided it was time to change that. So, I've gotten it into my head that I want to read more classical books, especially Jane Austen. I have never read any Jane Austen but I've watched the movies over and over.
I've just finished Sense & Sensibility and I enjoyed it. It was nice to get all the scenes and characters omitted from the movie. And I found it a lot more readable than I expected; there weren't many words that I didn't recognize.
I also checked out Northanger Abbey and I'm about to start that one this afternoon. I also checked out Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, because I happened to see it on the shelf and recognized it from the list. If I enjoy it, I'll read that one too.
My leg is messed up this week so this reading binge is well timed. I've got a big sore, maybe an insect bite, on my leg and it makes it painful to walk, so I won't be making my 6,000 steps a day this week. Oh well. I can always hope for better next week.
