"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.)

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

Should I or Shouldn't I...

...Feel Guilty?
Am I allowed to have this much fun at work? I mean, I know being a librarian in itself is one of the awesomest jobs ever. But to be having this much of a blast creating my own Library Mystery to pose as a possible program for a much-hoped-for Mystery theme for next year's Summer Reading? It almost seems...unfair to those of you who don't have this much fun at work.

Getting jealous. Of all the blessings in my life, LOVING my job isn't one of them. :) But I am GRATEFUL for my job. Does that count? :)

I think it can count! 'Cause there are definitely days I don't love my job, but I'm so grateful I have one.
