"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

Time for #2

Well, friends. It is time to say farewell to Prince Edward Island. I know. I will miss being with Anne and her family and friends. But perhaps our AKB Book Club will make a return journey. There are 7 more books with her. :-)

Until then, my PEI cows bid you a-moo.

And now we're off for our next book! You won't want to miss it. It's the one book my two voters on the AKB Book Club poll voted for unanimously. You bet. Next up is

Ella Enchanted!

I'll give you a week for a refresher and then post some discussion questions. Have fun (re-)reading if you so choose to do!
