Day 8: #Friendship (or “freindship”, according to Jane‘s spelling 😉)

Love and Freindship is an epistolary novel written by Austen in her teens for the amusement of her family.


@CrowCAH @mabell

CrowCAH Have you seen the 2016 movie Love and Friendship? It‘s pretty close to the text. 9mo
LeahBergen @CrowCAH I have seen that movie (loved it!) but it is based on Lady Susan (another of her epistolary novels) and they decided to call it by the name of this novel. Bizarre, don‘t you think? 9mo
CrowCAH @LeahBergen yes, very confusing. 9mo

I‘ve starting this chapter-a-day readalong with the #Pemberlittens and I‘ve been immediately captivated!

I haven‘t read a Gaskell (other than her ghost stories) since university. 👍

@jenniferw88 @sprainedbrain @StayCurious @MicrobeMom


DGRachel That‘s a beautiful edition! 9mo
batsy Yes! I'm immediately drawn in. Gaskell really knows how to spin a story. (And that's a beautiful edition!) 9mo
Centique It must be a great read because it‘s so beautiful to look at! I am going to get to Gaskell, I really am …. 🤞🤞 9mo

LeahBergen @DGRachel @batsy @Tamra @staci.reads Whoever designed this Gaskell series for Folio Society was inspired. I love ‘em! 9mo
LeahBergen @nanuska_153 The publisher is Folio Society. This series is out of print but I purchased mine secondhand. 👍 9mo
LeahBergen @Centique I‘ve been meaning to read this for YEARS. When I saw this group read pop up I knew it was time. 😆 9mo
MicrobeMom Yeah! I am so enjoying this one!! I am hooked! 9mo
Suet624 I‘ve wanted to read this for a while now. It‘s not in the cards right now unfortunately. 9mo

Look what‘s arrived, @rubyslippersreads !

I‘m so glad I didn‘t go ahead and buy a #FolioSociety edition of Love in a Cold Climate after you bought me The Pursuit of Love for my birthday. 😆 And a #PersephoneBooks that I don‘t own! Please thank Sadie and Nicky for the cat poetry and book-shaped paper clips and let them know I‘ll read a verse to #JohnnyBergen. 😆

Thanks so much, my dear friend. I love everything!! 😘😘😘

You‘ve spoiled me, @rubyslippersreads ! 😍 I haven‘t heard of the tagged book and it sounds so good. I had read a few of Haywood‘s Betsy book from my elementary school library but not this one … and a #FolioSociety edition of one of my favourite books! 😍 I‘ve eyed copies of it before but never bought it. The octopus socks are awesome! And I love the card, chocolate, and bookmarks (especially “I Am Quite Put Out” 🤣).

Thanks so much, my friend!

rubyslippersreads I‘m so glad you like everything! It was hard not to keep those octo-socks for myself. 😂 Hope you‘re having a lovely day. 🎂 13mo
squirrelbrain That‘s all so cute! 💕 13mo
LeahBergen @rubyslippersreads I love the colour of the socks… and his little monocle. 🤣 Thanks again! 😘😘 13mo
