"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

2012 Book Challenge books read

Sorry that I haven't gotten to posting about my 2012 Book Challenge(s). I got sick at the New Year and then things just didn't want to load. I couldn't get these up in any way except as jpgs. But at least they're up! Here are my 10 categories and what I read within them.

 Juvenile Fiction
 Juvenile Picture (not counting the other 240 I read!)
 Juvenile Fiction (less than 80 pages)
 Personal Choice: Titanic
  To Read List (before 2012)
 Young Adult Fiction
 Fiction published after 2000

I'll post my final totals probably tomorrow. I already calculated it all. But it's on my work computer.

Fun, fun, fun! I like the way you have it listed. Maybe I'll have to steal your idea. :)
