"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.)

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

He wrote "Christine" a lot.

My friend mentioned one of my favorite books on her blog recently.

The Phantom of the Opera.

So much better than the musical, though I do love the musical.

And since I was creating my own Wordle for Teen Tech Month--and you know I love Wordles...turtles....--I thought I'd combine the two.

And share it with you.
Wordle: Phantom of the Opera

I also did one for one of my favorite scenes in Northanger Abbey, but I forget to get a link to it after I printed it.

Wordles. Very fun! How did you do the one for "Phantom"? I did one for my blog and (are you surprised?), my biggest word was books. :)

I copied a portion of "In the Torture-Chamber" from Gutenberg.org and pasted it into the text box. It's fun to play with the colors and fonts, though sometimes that takes away a set-up that I really liked.

For NA one, I did the dancing vs. marriage conversation. And the biggest words were man, woman, think, duties, and agreeableness.

Very cool.
