My Beautiful New Book!

Ok, Rich thinks I am such a dork for taking pictures of my new book (not to mention posting them on the blog!). But I am so excited that I finally got this book that I have been wanting for so long! I also think it is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen! So much so, that I almost didn't want to read it but I just couldn't resist! It is a one volume version of Jane Austen's collected works. Or maybe I should say a collection of her completed novels because of course she had at least one or two other novels that she was not able to complete before she died and then there are the short stories she wrote in her youth. (which I hope to own as well one day since I do believe they have been published)
Anyway, I hope you like my pretty book!

ps- there are two new posts, so be sure to check them both out!
Is anyone else as excited as I am for Friday night!?!

Yes, it is the Barnes and Noble edition. I got Rich the one with all Hans Christian Andersons stories for his birthday last year and it's very pretty too! And they were only $20! (just in case you want to get your own copy)

So Becky I found the check I was sending to you today. I thought I sent it last week but it got mixed in with some other mail. I am sending it tomorrow so keep an eye out for it!
