Hey, long time no read! ^_^

So, in honor of the fact that PBS's Masterpiece Theatre has been showing the novels of Jane Austen lately, I'd picked up a book of her books, and in a chat with mechante_fille we decided it might be fun to revive this comm to read Emma and then at the end of reading, do a little compare and contrast with the movie Clueless just for kicks.

So, with that in mind, here are a couple of places you can find the book online if you don't want to go out to the library or the bookstore to get it:

Emma on the Gutenberg project

Emma at austen.com

I figure the schedule will go something like:

Feb 24: Volume 1 (Chapters 1-18)
March 3: Volume 2 (Chapters 19-36)
March 10: Volume 3 (Chapters 37-55)
March 17: Clueless Compare & Contrast

Anyone have any thoughts? Suggestions? Objections? ^_^

*glomps* Ack! Yes! I'm sorry. I'm pretty sure you were the person who initially fronted the idea. I just got to pinging back and forth with Mechante about it. But yeah, I'm pretty sure you were the one who got the ball rolling. ^_^;;

*tackle snugs* Life treating you any better, or do we need to band together and stomp some idiots for you? *huggles*

A virus ate my computer about two or three months ago, and when Jason fixed it, he blipped everything and he fixed it so that I can't install anything under the user I'm logged in as, so I no longer have aim. Which is fine as IMing still freaks me out for the most part. I ping on LJ or through email. Much, much calmer and easier on myself that way.

And dude, if you could write and IM at the same time, I'd have to check your pulse to see if you were still human and not some kind of slash writing cyborg. ;3 That's multitasking to an inhumanly insane degree...

No! No one stomps on my M!! *snuggle hugs*

Wheee! Feb 24... oh, good. 10 day. *gets busy... later* ^___^

Yay, this is reviving!

And I'm glad we're reading Austen; my friends have been taking me to task for only being familiar with P&P.
