Have you read Jane Austen?

I have never read any of Jane Austen's books *gasp*, Terrible right? Well, in my defense, I was never much of a reader growing up. I was a slow reader in my teens, so that discouraged me. I'm faster now, still no speed reader, and I really have to enjoy the book in order to read it quickly.
For a while now I have been wanting to get into Jane's books and would love to have someone to read them along with me. So, here I am finally updating this blog. Only time will tell if I get any takers.
Read with me and blog with me Here! I dont care if you have already read the book before, as long as you dont spoil the ending for me. :)  I have seen some of the movies that were made from Jane Austen's books.

  1. If you are looking for good books to read I highly recommend you read the Outlander series by Diana Gabladon. I just finished the last book and it was seriously one of the best series I have ever read! They are really long but so worth it! My friend over at the Gruneisen Family News has just started writing some book reviews too, if you are looking for new reads. I hope you are having a great week!

  2. I had to read Jane Eyre in HS. I did not enjoy it back then but when I watched the BBC production it was really good.

  3. My poor neglected book blog is getting dusty...

  4. I really enjoy Jane Austen's work. My favorite is Sense and Sensibility which I reread fairly often -- it's like comfort food to me. I just finished a YA novel called Cassandra's Sister which is about Jane Austen's early life (historical fiction). It was sweet. I also recommend the movie version of Sense and Sensibility with Alan Rickman (sigh!) :-)
