Wordsmitten Wednesday: Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

WW

. . . I have long understood through my own insatiable appetite for readings and re-readings of Jane Austen’s six novels, why children want the same stories read to them a thousand times. There is comfort in the familiarity of it all, in the knowledge that all will turn out well . . . It is so unlike the unpredictability and unfairness of real-life endings . . .
