The visit of Sir Selwyn proved to be both less stressful and shorter than the Darcys had feared. The High Constable, Sir Miles Culpepper, had written to his butler the previous #Thursday to say that he would be returning to Derbyshire in time for dinner on Monday and the butler had thought it prudent to pass on this information to Sir Selwyn. #QuotsyFeb20

At this rate I‘ll never finish. Too cute to move.

So much for finishing, Mads is book-blocking again.

The event to which Mrs. Bennet was referring was the annual fundraising luncheon for the Cincinnati Women‘s #League, scheduled this year for the 2nd Thurs in Sept. A member of the league since her 20‘s, Mrs. Bennet was for the 1st time the luncheon‘s planning chair & as she often reminded her family members, the enormous pressure & responsibility of the role left her, however lamentably, unavailable to tend to her husband‘s recovery. #QuotsyFeb20

When your current nighttime book begins to focus on a nighttime home invasion and murder of an entire family, it's best to turn to Jane for comfort instead.

Texreader Yikes! Good idea! 3d
Librarybelle Jane to the rescue! 3d
Mishu94 I have not read this one as yet, how is it? 3d

ferskner @Texreader @Librarybelle Jane is always here when we need her! @Mishu94 it's fantastic! I read it many years ago so I'm not as familiar with it as some of her other books, but it's definitely one of her best. 2d
Mishu94 @ferskner i have read pride and prejudice which I loved! I want to read more by Austen but I don‘t really know which of her work is like a must read! 😔 2d
ferskner @Mishu94 Persuasion is my favorite of all, but I also love Emma a lot. 2d
Mishu94 @ferskner I‘ll check both of them out! Thank you! 🤗🤗 1d

#FebruaryFeels #LongWait

It was a long wait for Anne Elliot & Captain Frederick Wentworth but the wait & his almost broken heart & pierced soul led to the letter to rule all letters. (Swoon 💜)

ralexist My favorite Austen! I recently did a "re-read" listening to it as an audiobook. I loved revisiting the story in a different format ? 4d
DebinHawaii @ralexist Yes! I listened to the Greta Scacchi narrated version a couple of years ago & loved it. I keep hoping Rosamund Pike does one. I love her Pride and Prejudice & Sense and Sensibility narrations. 4d
Eggs Great choice 👏🏻👏🏻🤗🤗 3d

We have a severe case of the Mondays. The neighbours had a party into the very wee hours of the night.

#12Littens12BooksRound2 - with fewer Littens and fewer books 😁

#ShadowCat even had his front paws on me a moment ago. Something he rarely does.

Cathythoughts Oh no !!! Monday‘s 🙄 4d
tvscag He looks like my Midnight! 😄 4d
julesG @tvscag Shadow's a black feral foundling who happens to have a bit of Bombay DNA. My vet said it's a pity I had him and his adoptive sister spayed/neutered. #GhostCat is a Siamese with some Abyssinian mixed in. They might have made wonderful kittens. 😉 4d

Also, adorable kitty! =]

Grigg was a neat, dark-haired man in his early forties. The first thing you noticed about him was his eyelashes, which were very long and thick. We imagined a lifetime of aunts regretting the waste of those lashes in the face of a boy. We‘d known Jocelyn long enough to wonder whom Grigg was intended for. Grigg was too young for some of us, too old for the rest. His #inclusion in the club was mystifying. #QuotsyFeb20 #TheMovieIsBetter

marleed The movie really is better! 4d

Damn...this is a perfect period piece for me when I need a break. Good old love triangle but NOT with a pair of brothers (I'm as shocked as you). I love the sisters. I want to reach through the book and high five their father so damn much. A period piece where dad isn't sexist as fuck... *chefs kiss*

PurpleTulipGirl The father isn‘t sexist? Is that allowed? 5d
