Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Emma by Jane Austen

Emma - Jane Austen, Fiona Stafford

I assigned this book to my girls for school this year. I made them do the whole book, no matter how much they wanted to break up with the author (after 50 pages). We talked about the folly of Emma and how she seems to constantly meddle in the lives of those around her and how she seems to have airs, thinking and acting as though she is better than others. 


The story was as I remembered it and still is not among my favorite genre, but worth the re-read.
