"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

Born of Goodly Parents

I had a milestone birthday this year. In "honor" of it, I fulfilled a 13-year-old dream and recorded a CD for my parents. I specifically chose songs that have meaning between either my parents, or between my parents and me. While I recorded it at a professional studio, the recording is by no means as professional as, say, the wonderful Josh. I just couldn't afford the time or finances for something like that!

Anywho. I know there are friends and family who would like a copy. I am not selling the CD. It is illegal for me to do so. But I would love to provide copies to those interested. The cost to copy and ship would get a bit steep after a bit, so I came up with a PayPal option. For the next few weeks I will have this option available (on the left sidebar of this blog) for those who would like a copy.

Thank you for your love and support--especially here with two of my greatest loves in music and singing.
