It's such a treat to see my books on reading list, and it's particularly flattering to find them on a reading list on a site devoted to Jane Austen! Thanks!

Wonderful site, by the way!

It is a very nice list!
I would have gone for "Room with a View" as my second choice.

Hello there! I Just came over after visiting Austenprose and fear I am now hooked completely on your blog!- Wonderful book lists provided here. There are several I've always wanted to read but haven't yet so I will add them to my list as well...I'm presently reading "The Widow of the South" by Richard Hicks...Once more, Lovely..Lovely blog!

I just saw the list of suggested summer reads - I'll have to look them up! Some mentioned Ken Follett which reminded me of his book "A Place Called Freedom". It's a great book set in 1766 that takes you from London to America. It's a good read!
