  1. Isn't it sad that Jane Austen died so young? I certainly wish there were more books of hers but the few she wrote are so well-regarded. I've read 3 and definitely want to get to the others.

  2. Cat

    Jane Austen is always a pleasure to read. Her early death does make one wonder what other wonderful works she would have left us if she's lived longer.
