I love to read. Shame, however, hangs over my head as I admit that I have never read a Jane Austen novel. How could I pass up such classic tales? When I am through with my current book (The Help, by Kathryn Stockett -- have you read it?), I plan to introduce myself to Jane Austen's characters. I currently own a large hardcover filled with 3 of Austen's lovely stories, but check out these gorgeous books! The cover designs are so wonderful. I think they'd look nice on any bookshelf. For now, I'll stick my 3-in-1 Austen collection, but if I fall in love with her writing, I might have to add these to my collection.
