In My Mailbox - April 17th, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.  I know I said I wasn't going to get anymore books for a while, but I needed a book for SSR (Silent Sustained Reading) at school.  My mom was going to the store, so I asked her to just pick up any Jane Austen book she wanted.  She got this one:

Sense and Sensibility (Barnes & Noble Classics)Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Jane Austen’s first published novel, Sense and Sensibility is a wonderfully entertaining tale of flirtation and folly that revolves around two starkly different sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. While Elinor is thoughtful, considerate, and calm, her younger sister is emotional and wildly romantic. Both are looking for a husband, but neither Elinor’s reason nor Marianne’s passion can lead them to perfect happiness—as Marianne falls for an unscrupulous rascal and Elinor becomes attached to a man who’s already engaged.

Startling secrets, unexpected twists, and heartless betrayals interrupt the marriage games that follow. Filled with satiric wit and subtle characterizations, Sense and Sensibility teaches that true love requires a balance of reason and emotion.


  1. Loved SENSE AND SENSIBILITY!! One of my favorite Jane Austen's :)

  2. It's been so long since I have read S&S I should dig out my copy.
    Happy reading.
