Queen Jane

"People always live forever when there is an annuity to be paid them."{Sense and Sensibility - chapter 2}

October 30th marks the 200th anniversary of the publication of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.   Jane sold all 750 copies of the book in less than 2 years and earned 140 pounds for those original books (whose author was listed as 'By A Lady"). 


I loved reading this book in high school and am making it this week's book to read.
