Quoting Jane Austen



"It is a rule with me, that a person who can write a long letter with ease, cannot write ill." (Caroline Bingley, Pride & Prejudice)

Really, Jane? Really, y'all?

    1. :) Many of my letters are too long, off topic, and probably don't make sense, but have you ever answered the same letter twice? I have. A simple remedy would be to mark the envelope, right? No. I cannot bear to mar them any more. And I'm off topic again. (sigh)

    1. You're welcome. I'm sorry it's a book you've read. I'd send "The Book of Strange New Things" after I've finished it, but it's one I will read again. Have you read it?
