"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

The AKB Blog is...

on the road!!

I am taking a much-needed and well-deserved (I only say that because everyone at work said it....does that mean something?) vacation!

And who better to visit than my most, uh, loyal (is that the word I want?) AKB blog reader and AKB Book Club participator.

It's becoming a Thanksgiving tradition.

And one I love!!!

Where better to go than the home that feels like a second family, and a friend whom I love so much!?

And while we're on vacation and "have time" (ha ha ha ha!), maybe we should get better at writing on this here blog o' mine.

So much I could say. But I'm gonna cop out and announce the next destination of the AKB Book Club. Woohoo! We are moving on to the land of Panem.

Watch your step in this world as we get ready to read and discuss

The Hunger Games Trilogy!

This is a series I just can't motivate myself to read. Do I really have to read it? It's a genre that I generally can't stand. Will I like it anyway? Is it worth my time?
