"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

I Try

I guess the haiku didn't get me any more participation on the polls. In fact, I think it got me less. Well, we try. And we don't always succeed. But we still enjoy the trying.

I still want to know what you mean by "favorite" female villain. Most enjoyable? Most hated? Least hated?

It's actually which ever way you choose it to be--thus sparking discussion!

For me it was the best created/ written/described/executed as being the most, uh, villanous.
