"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.)

"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

Is it just me...

...or can anyone else see the humor in a murder mystery being written by an author names Kaitlyn Dunnett?

The book does hold a bit of interest for me, as I think Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swenson series has spurred my liking for cozy mysteries. Of course, that series also added the tasty flavor of included recipes. Mmmm....holiday season coming up--time to bake from the Swenson recipes again!

The big question in all this, though, is can I wait for our library to obtain the audiobook for the newly released #12 Hannah Swenson book, or will I cave and go for the large print? I'll have to eventually so I can copy the recipes!!

I'm afraid I don't know who Kaitlyn Dunnett is, but her name is awfully funny for a mystery author. :) Saralyn Dunnett. Hm... :) Just cave in with Hannah! I'm really excited about this book. Will she finally come to her senses and dump Mike?! I seem to have gotten leanings those ways the last couple of books. Is it just me?

I only heard of Kaitlyn today as I was going through a review journal. It was a good laugh.

It's not just you--she really needs to dump Mike. I mean, I was never a fan of him anyhow, but with "Cream Puff?" Uh! That would have sealed the deal right there! I unfortunately, after writing this post, saw the synopsis for the next book ("Apple Turnover"--love the titles). So I have a guess Fluke is still dilly-dallying between the two. Doesn't she realize that most fans want Norman, and that it would be such a fun direction to take if Hannah and Norman married and sleuthed together!

That's it! I've found my next poll!
