Jane Austen Times

Sometimes I truly wish I lived in Jane Austen times, the Regency Era. It sound like the best place to be. The times were so simple and peaceful, which was really exemplified in Austen’s novel Emma. In Emma, a young lady in a reasonably small town entertains herself by getting into other peoples’ business. Of course trouble ensues, but in the end she learns her lesson. One thing I love about Emma is the society, there is always excitement for some sort of social gathering whether it be a ball or a picnic. There is talk about how one simply must invite them over for tea. This sounds like the perfect time to live in. Image


Summer Reading

As always I have my list of summer reading that is completely overkill. I set a goal to read all my books, though I rarely ever finish all of them (especially last year’s list of 42.) My list this year is a little more reasonable: only 27 books.


  1. Tom Sawyer
  2. A Day No Pigs Would Die
  3. The Red Pony
  4. White Fang
  5. Pride and Prejudice
  6. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
  7. A Room With A View
  8. My Antonia
  9. Emma
  10. The Invisible MAn
  11. Fahrenheit 451
  12. The Grapes of Wrath
  13. Sense and Sensibility
  14. Wildwood
  15. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
  16. Animal Farm
  17. Persuasion
  18. Lord of the Flies
  19. The Fall of Anne Boleyn
  20. The Jungle
  21. Northanger Abbey
  22. Lord Jim
  23. The Aviary
  24. The Great Gatsby
  25. The Man In The Iron Mask
  26. The Book Thief
  27. The Pearl

Do you think I will be able to read the list?
