Trashcanman I must know what the tattoo says if it's something you don't mind sharing? 3w
readordierachel @Trashcanman Sure, I don't mind. It says "All sanity depends on this: that it should be a delight to feel heat strike the skin, a delight to stand upright, knowing the bones are moving easily under the flesh." It's from the Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing. I read it (and got the tattoo) in my early 20s, when I was going through some stuff. It resonated for some reason. 3w

rohit-sawant @Reviewsbylola Oo, that's difficult to answer! They were unique in tone to one another and I loved them all. And VotD was so good! I instantly connected with JS's voice. Love it when that happens. Also it's a tie between all three anthologies/collection (Carnival, Seize & Trouble) for their scope of imagination. I love the vampire subgenre so Seize was especially fun. 1mo

I got this as a daily deal from Audible. Rosamund Pike was the perfect narrator. I normally would have found the husband-hunting antics of Elinor and Marianne extremely tedious, but Ms. Austen‘s snark saves the day. Overall, a lovely way to spend the train ride on our way to Chicago.

#bookmail! S&S is my least favorite Austen, but I saw this #PenguinClassicsDeluxeEdition cover and had to have it. Yes, I have five copies of Persuasion already, but I don‘t have an annotated edition and I love this cover, too. I fear I will have to collect all of the annotated Austens. Dang it. #bookaddict #noshame #wellmaybealittle #cantstopwontstop #austenaddict

I‘ve been partway though this book for MONTHS, so I finally got the audio version and started over. That did the trick 🤗 I was surprised by how much this book felt like a first version of Pride and Prejudice, since they were so similar (with a few major differences, of course). But I really liked it, and I‘m glad I finally finished it!

Rare books by women in a lovely old bookshop setting, owned and run by women - I‘m there! Evidently their most expensive book is Jane Austen‘s best friends copy of Sense and Sensibility, inscribed by Martha Lloyd. But it‘s a little out of my price range ((d0,000).

I have read Sense and Sensibility many times, but this was my first time listening. Rosamund Pike is an excellent narrator. She captures the nuances of emotion from each character, and differentiates her voice to suit each personality. I love this story of Eleanor and Marianne. I always come down on the side of Sense, but as I age, I am more sympathetic to the needs of Sensibility.

One of my favorite actresses, Juliet Stevenson, narrates this audio version of S&S and it was as enjoyable as expected!

If you haven‘t seen her in Truly, Madly, Deeply make the effort to find it. It‘s a mushy love story, but totally NOT in the way you‘d expect, otherwise I would 🤢. Ha!

Susanita LOVE that movie! 3mo
Tamra @Susanita isn‘t she amazing in it? Totally believable - visceral grief. 3mo
Susanita Yes! No single dainty tear rolling down her cheek. She does the ugly cry! I also love Spanish and cellos, so this movie hits those spots too. 3mo

Penny_LiteraryHoarders I loved listening to Juliet Stevenson, but her most recent audiobook was for The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock and I had to quit it! 😭 She was giving the characters over-the-top voices and it wasn't her usual wonderfully beautiful work. 😞 But I won't quit her. 😊 3mo
Tamra @Penny_LiteraryHoarders oh, shoot! That‘s too bad, but I guess she‘s not perfect. 😆 I wouldn‘t give up either. I too really dislike it when narrators try too hard to differentiate voices and especially when men imitate women‘s voices in an affected way. Yuck! 3mo
saresmoore I‘m listening to her narration of Wuthering Heights, right now. She‘s the best! @Moray_Reads introduced me to her and I want to listen to everything she‘s done. 3mo

jenniferw88 @SailorMoon if you want advice on where to start with Jane Austen, I'd suggest Persuasion first (lots of things to do with the navy & I'm guessing you like boats because of your username). 4mo
SailorMoon @jenniferw88 I already tried reading Pride&Prejudice at least three times but I can't really get myself into liking it... but everyone keeps telling me how great Austen's books are, so maybe I'll try and read a different title! (Btw my username is from the cartoon, I am not actually into boats 🤣) 😘 4mo
jenniferw88 @SailorMoon fair enough re username! I personally think that everyone who likes Austen has an order of preference of the novels, so it may just be that Pride and Prejudice isn't the one for you. 4mo

Lady Middleton was equally pleased with Mrs. Dashwood. There was a kind of cold hearted selfishness on both sides, which mutually attracted them; and they sympathised with each other in an insipid propriety of demeanor, and a general want of understanding. #burn

How was your month of reading? I read 6 books, so that‘s pretty on par for me.
1. Sense and Sensibility
2. The Obelisk Gate
3. Queen of Shadows
4. Sleeping Giants
5. The Darkest Star
6. H is for Hawk

mom2bugnbee A re-read of Sense & Sensibility is next on my list, because my daughter & husband are in a local theatre production of it opening next week! 4mo
Merethebookgal @mom2bugnbee That‘s so cool!! 4mo

Woke up sick today 🤧🤒 so it's been pretty much just the couch and some comfort Austen for me. My beautiful kitty Dr. Scully was my cuddle buddy all day 🐈💖

suzisteffen Hope you feel better soon! Hurray for cats and Jane Austen, though. 4mo
Jocelyn73c @suzisteffen Hurray indeed! 4mo

What do I even say about this cover? Except I clearly need a new edition of this book! 😄

LiteraryinLititz Wowwwww.... 4mo

Post Women‘s March, I refueled at a local restaurant and went to a used bookstore where I found these beautiful editions of Sense and Sensibility, Wuthering Heights, and one of my personal favorites, Jane Eyre. The gilded edges caught my eye from across the room like a homing beacon. Oh, and they were on sale! What a good day it‘s been!

Bookcation74 Those are gorgeous!! 4mo
Sarah83 They look so pretty 💖 4mo
HardcoverHearts @Bookcation74 Right?! I was FaceTiming with my mother, who thinks I buy too many books, and when I showed her the books, she said, “Oh, those are stunning!” 😂🥰 4mo

HardcoverHearts @Sarah83 They are no Folios but they will do. 😉 4mo
HardcoverHearts @vivastory Thank you! Maybe it was good karma for marching that helped me find them. 😂 4mo
Sarah83 That's true, but they look so lovely and they aren't as expensive as Folios are in nowadays. Have you seen the sale on their internet page? 4mo
DivineDiana Beautiful books! Great find! 👏🏻📚👏🏻 4mo
Ruthiella Beautiful books and so impressed you marched! Well done! 🙏❤️👍 4mo
HardcoverHearts @Sarah83 Oh yes. I am banning myself from new Folios. So I troll the local bookstores for them. It‘s like a treasure hunt. My holy grail is that 84, Charing Cross Road FS!! I am almost sure you have one. It‘s what keeps me on the hunt. In the meantime I find stunning gems like these. 4mo
mrp27 😍😍😍 4mo
batsy These are stunning 😍 Great find! 4mo
Sarah83 I found them at Amazon, but they are quite expensive. 4mo

Not as engaging as Austen‘s most famous, but a reliable re-read

I read this seven years ago and gave it five stars. I just read it again for the #ArdentlyAustenBookClub (Instagram).
I did not remember the details of the story as I thought I did, so I was able to enjoy it all again. I adore Austen‘s wit and the way she reveals human nature flawlessly.

Ahh my new read Jane Austin. Her perspective to me (imo) is like having a new witty friend. She is almost like a Mean Girl in her depiction of others ( her characters) observing the foibles of humanity?. She reminds me of Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls who observes the Mean Girls from the perspective of an outsider and yet gets caught up in the "society" of the Mean Girls. Is Jane Austin really wanting to be caught up in her day's society? Maybe??

I began 2019 by starting this on audiobook while going to the gym. I‘ve read all of Austen‘s novels before (except for Lady Susan) but I‘ve been in a mood for a reread and there are some people on Instagram hosting a Jane Austen Book Club this year, so it seemed like a great way to read them again! (If you‘re on IG and interested the hashtag is #ardentlyaustenbookclub )

Mc_cart_ny How are you liking the narrator? I'm doing one Austen reread a year (last year was P&P) and unsurprisingly there seem to be quite a few options for productions/narrator so I want to make sure I pick a good one. Maybe Sense and Sensibility will be this year's reread! 😁 5mo
Merethebookgal @Mc_cart_ny I‘m liking this narrator so far! I know what you mean, there‘s a lot to choose from, so I listened to samples of each one available through Libby and chose to check this one out. I believe Rosamund Pike also narrated a version for Audible, which I‘m sure is quite good, but I didn‘t feel like spending money on it. 5mo
Mc_cart_ny @Merethebookgal haha yes, free is always better! 5mo
