"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

My First Book Club Response!

My friend, fellow church member, and co-worker (Meredith) submitted her Book Club answers the day I sent them out! I figured I'd put up all the answers I get in their own postings on May 14th (or after if I receive them afterwards) so that we can read what everyone has to say and go with our discussions from there. Of course, I've heard that some co-workers have already been discussing quite a bit already. It's terrible that we don't all work in the same department so we can have these great conversations at the same desk. Oh well. At least the electronic world helps make up for the ~50 yards of separation.
