Jane Austen's Oeuvre


Today I was upstairs shelving books in the library I work at. Because we have much less to shelve in the limited library of the Pandemic, these days this it is a rare burden/pleasure. I never have been clear in all the years of my shelving as to which it is, burden or pleasure. It's definitely one of them, possibly both, and certainly not neither.

I soon came across the Jane Austens, and I noticed a book in there I'd not seen before:

Minor Works

I thought:

This is an unusual way to title a copy of Northanger Abbey.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
