"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

Dear Kind Reader

Please help me get ready for my final Teen Summer party! I'm trying to put together a Teen Feud based on this summer's theme (You are Here). The survey I have created should only take a couple of minutes of your time. The answers should be the first thing you think of, only one or two words in length.

I'm hoping to get 100 responses, so if you know of others who would like to take it, that would be great! Hopefully I'll get plenty from the YA librarian listserv I'm on. But thought I'd cover as many bases as I could.

Click here to take survey

Thanks so much!
