"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

For Our Next Stop

We need a new book for the AKB Book Club, don't you think? As much as I love Ella, and have enjoyed thinking for a month about how I should answer my own questions, I do believe it is time to leave Kyrria.

Definitely time.

And our next book to visit will be...O Joy of Joys...

The Blue Castle!

Yes, I'm in the mood for another L.M. Montgomery, particularly a hopeless romantic love story. And as I find that in abundance in this, my absolute favorite work by Montgomery, you are just going to have to deal with it!

But I don't think you'll mind too much.

Questions to come in a week.

Enjoy our visit to Mistawis Island!
