"And to this purpose"

"If people like to read their books, it is all very well, but to be at so much trouble in filling great volumes, which, as I used to think, nobody would willingly ever look into, to be labouring only for the torment of little boys and girls, always struck me as a hard fate; and though I know it is all very right and necessary, I have often wondered at the person's courage that could sit down on purpose to do it." (In other words: rambling analyses, opinions, ideas, views, and comments from an English major, Essay/paper-writing enthusiastic, Austen-loving Master Librarian on, well, Jane Austen...and a whole lot of other things, too.)

"Celebrated Passages are Quoted"

Heidi's favorite quotes

"What is it really like to be engaged?" asked Anne curiously. "Well, that all depends on who you're engaged to," answered Diana, with that maddening air of superior wisdom always assumed by those who are engaged over those who are not."— L.M. Montgomery

Polls are Closed!

I wait in anxiousness for the words from thy mouths. Or, fingers. Thank you to all who helped contribute to the 19 votes! Although, does anyone notice that the thing below the poll tallied 15 votes? Trouble counting I suppose. Oh well. There are some men who need some defending. And maybe even some who need accusing. I don't know what may come, but I'm excited to see it!

I just got back from Conference vacation and am not yet done writing about my Austen men. When is the deadline?

Oh. I'm not sure. Shall we say by this time next week? And if anyone needs an extension, just ask. I'm pretty flexible that way. I still need some time to write a few more Henry posts anyhow. :-)
