“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
―     Jane Austen

Yep, you read that right. Jane Austen tells it like it is. I can’t help but adore Austen for all of her books, and for her unbelievable intelligence.  She died long ago, but I still feel connected to her through her writing. A writer can’t hope for anything more.
