Loose Ends

I've been reading Pride & Prejudice for a summer book club and I'm down to the final chapter. As always, when I get to the end of a good fiction book, I don't want to finish it! I don't want it to end! When I get to the last 50 or so pages, I start pacing myself, reading only a few pages at a time so I can relish every last word. I am loving this book!
Here's a fun quiz I just took, it was quite accurate:

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of ridiculousness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgment that serves you very ill indeed.

Please leave a comment and tell me who you are.

And now for the results of the recent Adoption Contest. . .
I asked Lydia what her favorite number was (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 since there were six entries). We just got back from the Splash Park when I realized I needed to hurry up and choose a winner.

The winner is Heather! Congrats! Email me your address and I'll ship the book ASAP.

LOL. The last time I finished reading Pride and Prujudice, I turned it over, and began again! Have you seen the movie? The BBC version, NOT the one w/ Kiera Knightly - it's SO good, because the dialog is practically word for word from the novel. It is one of maybe two book-to-movies that I recommend :)

I love your chickens, and that button btw. Another Jenna creation? :)

I have taken this test three times about 6 months apart and every time, I get this answer--so it must be true--since I can't for the life of me think of what I answered the last times.

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.

I love all the Jane Austen stories--I have Pride and Prej. the movie--the A&E version--if you ever want to borrow it:). I love it best over all the versions(I think there are about four versions I know of)...I've seen them all!!
Have a great day!!

Anybody notice that a computer just told me I'm attractive?? What in the world does that mean?? I'm not sure how to feel about that. LOL!

Hi Ginger!

I did the test too, and I'm Elinor Dashwood. I love Pride and Prejudice, and yes, the BBC version is by far the best ever, practically word for word.
