"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

AKB Book Club, Moving On

It is most definitely time to move on from our visit with the everlasting Tucks. And we shall most definitely move on to a book that I remember better/have read more recently. I thought we might delve a bit more into the fantasy and visit a world that doesn't exist on this earth. Plus, my good reading friend is going through the whole series (probably will be done with it by tomorrow!), and I know how much some of you other reading friends have enjoyed it.

So, ohhhhhhhh be excited--because I sure am!

My friends,

Welcome to Bayern!

Yep! We're going to read The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale for our current selection. Questions will come in a week or two. Enjoy reviewing or re-reading. Or reading for the first time--you're in for a great treat. I'm so thrilled about this one!!!

Sweet! I keep telling myself I'm going to join in the AKB Book Club and then finking out. But I totally have read this book recently enough to answer questions, even if I don't reread it. I'm excited!

I absolutely loved this series! Every girl should read it. It's so refreshing - escaping into a world that is enchanted, beautiful, full of promise and great potential. So fun! Enjoy.
(I hope I'm aloud to comment even if I'm not in the club.)
