Reporter Stacy Vogel of The Janesville Gazette is yawning over the Jane Austen sequel industry.
Here's the thing: "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite book for a reason. So why should I read these imitations (or reinterpretations, as they like to call them) when I have the real thing sitting on my shelf?
Hmmm? It’s quite obvious to moi. Maybe she should research why her cities founding fathers chose to name their metropolis Janesville. They certainly understood that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
