@cecil hungry that sucks!I hope things look up for you soon!
I first tried to read P&P in high school and couldn't get through it. I then read it in college and completely fell in love with it. Sometimes you have to meet books at the right time.
Persuasion is the best one, though. It's REAL in a way that P&P can never be.
Emma Thompson's/Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility is one of the most perfect/most satisfying movies ever made.
@Princess Slaya Totally agree. I love all Austen but Mansfield Park must have been written by an alien imposter. Terrible.
@miss olsen switch the order of 4 and 5 and you're right on!
@Linette THANK YOU for this. I feel similarly to LW5 sometimes and this was wonderful to hear. Sometimes we just want someone to encourage us to persevere and tell us we're not crazy.
@Jaya Is "damn-near" oqay?
@AmeliaBadelia I'm doing this. I don't know if it's going well. I kind of want to break it tomorrow when I'm out with friends. 11 days is a perfectly legit fast. who said it had to be a month?
I have an actual first date with an actual human man tomorrow. This is a big deal for me since it's a pretty rare occurrence. I'm excited but also nervous. Wish me luck Pinners!
@Nicole Cliffe @Jane Marie CONGRATULATIONS! HOW WONDERFUL!
