"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

Early Birthday Present

I met Heather Dixon today!!!

And she's just as awesome as I knew she was.

Yes, I said "was" and not "would be." Because I've been stalking her blog for a few months now and I just knew she was awesome before meeting her.

Actually, she's probably more than awesome.

And I could tell I was right about another thing--we definitely would have been friends if we'd known each other in college! She's so personable and fun and funny and, well, fabulous. Can't wait to see her again in a few days!

I haven't read her book yet, but I've had it on hold forever. I'm so glad that she was nice!
