One of the perks of working in a library -at least for me- is finding the notes left by my friend and coworker with thoughts on the book I happen to have on hold. Little does she know I keep them all. Muahahahahahaha!

This is my newest addition, found tucked into The Jane Austen Handbook by Margaret C. Sullivan:
It reads: Hahaha! You're hilarious. Now you have to have an Austen party.

Well, it wasn't my plan -I'm actually researching Regency England- but apparently now there's no getting out of it. Anyone know some good British recipes? (Seriously, send them to my Pinterest account.)

What's your favorite Austen novel?
I'm going to be totally cliche and say Pride & Prejudice, though I will admit, my current favorite Austen adaptation is the Emma Thompson Sense & Sensibility because Alan Rickman's Colonel Brandon somehow became my Austen soulmate within the last year. (When did that happen?!)
You know what, I don't even care. Ya'll can have Darcy. Brandon's mine.


  1. I didn't know you worked in a library! Well, I was expecting some fancy Austen bookmark but I think this is awesome :) When's the party?

    1. Ah, well I have to finish reading the book first to see how it's done! ^_^
