"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

Just a little longer

The weekend was busy. Biz. Zy. And I am just now waking up on my Monday morning off, still feeling like I need a little more recovery time. Plus, I need to finish doing my taxes and would like to take care of that for the one hour I have left.

So, I don't have any questions for the AKB Book Club ready. I'm hoping to work on them this week. Until then, keep reading about Valancy and Barney. I never get enough of them--I wish that one had been turned into a series, as I never tire of their adventures together.
