    Jane Eyre is one of the most beautifully and perfectly written books in the English language. Not so much for amazingly clever or erudite or flowery turns of phrase, though there are some of those, but for the sense you get that by some sort of alchemy every word is perfect in it's place. As you are reading you get the sense of a river serenely flowing to it's destination and there is never a false step or a wrong turn. It's pure pleasure.

    ^^I don't remember Jane Eyre having quite the same effect on me. May be time to read it again. Wuthering Heights is a worthy read once you get past the first 100 pages and I really enjoyed Pride and Prejudice.

    I read The Sleeping Doll. I found the whole process of investigation pretty interesting but Heavens!!! if there was one more twist! It got a bit boring at the end for me. What about you?

    I enjoy all of Jane Austen.

    I first read Wuthering Heights when I was 13 and it had a profound effect on my budding romantic notions. After that, I never did like a boy, or a man, who wasn't dark and broody.

    And yes, please do re-read Jane Eyre. Even if you don't find it as beautiful as I did, it certainly won't be a waste of time.

    Just finishing Rebel Heart by Bebe Buell. She never did drugs. Okaaaay. She was never a tramp. Okaaay. Most songs in the English language with the exception of Someone's In the Kitchen With Dinah are about her. Little Red Corvette is about her because Prince says Bebe you're much to fast. Bebe? Baby?

    Just read some interchangable Jackie Collins novel. Took me about 6 hours and only that long because I was tired. Now about to start a book about the rise of the Middle Classes. Looks very interesting, if a bit heavy for my current distracted state of mind.

    I finally got to The Kite Runner. It's a great story.

    It did kind of go in different directions, but it was ok.

    I just finished another Jonathan Kellerman book and hated the way it ended. It was like HUH? That's how this ends?

    Just finished Sharon Osbourne's autobiography. A friend gave it to me and I actually liked it alot more than I thought I would. She's bonkers but strangely compelling.
