Foreword and chapter 1: I skipped most of the intro because it seemed like there might be some spoilers. Here we meet Anne Sharpe, Jane‘s somewhat secret friend, who works for John and Fanny…. Also known as Jane‘s brother and SIL, Edward and Elizabeth….. #senseandsensibility #elizabethisfanny #nastyfamily #pemerlittens #chapteraday #jaaaaaames #couldntresist #imdonenow

Crinoline_Laphroaig This great because I just finished 7mo
IndoorDame One of the two intro sections was about the friendship of the co-authors of this book and how they met, not about the subjects so no spoilers there, and it was really sweet. 7mo

BarkingMadRead @IndoorDame oh that‘s good, I read the part about how they met but it started to look like they were going to break down the chapters, so I stopped! 7mo
TheBookHippie I never read them because too many times SPOILERS 😂 7mo
Caroline2 I often skip intros too because I don‘t want any spoilers. 😆 7mo
Ruthiella I hear you on SPOILERS! It doesn‘t matter that the book has been in print for 100 years…that doesn‘t mean I‘ve read it! 😣 7mo
AllDebooks I avoid intros until I've read the book 7mo
suvata I guess I‘m the odd one, because I read everything from cover to cover in the order it is presented to me. That includes intros, afterwords, and anything but an index. 7mo
julieclair I‘m in ! Please add me to the tag list. And… I never read intros either. Have been burned by spoilers too many times. I go back and read them as an afterword instead. 7mo
BarkingMadRead @julieclair I‘ll add you!! I‘m glad to see it‘s not just me that skips the intro! 7mo
suvata Chapter 1 - why in the world would Cassandra and Fanny burn the letters they got from Jane? It is a good thing that Fannie left behind her journals so we can learn a bit about Jane and Anne‘s relationship 7mo
BarkingMadRead @suvata it blows my mind! 7mo
julieclair @suvata Goid question! I have always assumed it was because they were trying to keep their family life private, and and maybe also to hide any less-than-flattering parts of Jane‘s personality from the public. 7mo
suvata @julieclair Personally, I think she may have been gay and they don‘t want to admit it. That was so forbidden at that time. (edited) 7mo
julieclair @suvata I wondered about that, too. Could she have been in love with Ann Sharpe? That is definitely something the family would have wanted to keep hidden in those days. 7mo

Kshakal Those earrings are beautiful!! 4y
CoffeeNBooks @Lcsmcat You shared this tip with me awhile back, and I finally tried it, and it totally worked! Thank you!! 4y
DivineDiana @Lynnsoprano 🤷‍♀️🙂📚 4y
DivineDiana @Lcsmcat @CoffeeNBooks Thank you! I have a hairdryer, so will try this first! 4y
DivineDiana @erzascarletbookgasm Where do you buy a label remover? 4y
DivineDiana @Kshakal Thank you! I thought they were similar to the ones on the cover! 4y
erzascarletbookgasm I don‘t know where you can get that in the US. You can also use lighter fluid (like Zippo). Pat a decent amount of the fluid onto the price tag, peel it off using a sharp blade or paper cutter. It also works. 4y
DivineDiana @erzascarletbookgasm Thank you! ❤️ 4y
