Lost in Austen

Please tell me that the Pilgrim is not the only one to be lost in Austen of late. With PBS running The Complete Jane Austen over the course of six or seven Sundays (and what great knitting accompaniment that is!), he has found himself completely immersed. So much, in fact, that he has declared 2008 the year that he will read (or reread) the complete works.

Tis a reasonable goal: there are, I believe, but six published full-length novels. And as one can see, I have run out already and purchased the Penguin Classics set.

To date I have completed reading "Sense and Sensibility," as the dog-eared paperback at right will attest.

"P & P" would logically come next - as it did originally in print. But do chime in, Gentle Reader, with your thoughts. Which of Miss Austen's oeuvre should the Pilgrim pick up next?

I do look forward to your comments and, as always, your thoughts.

Until next time...
Happy Reading.

You chose a great author and I'm sure you'll have loads of fun while reading. Unfortunately, reading & knitting cannot be done at the same time. That'd be my ideal day. ;-)
