I love these books because they are easy to read and they are "written at walking pace". What I mean by that is, the pace of life when these books were being written was much more gently, and you can feel this rythm in the writing. It instantly transports you this other time. Sometimes it's nice to slow down , and take in the minutae of your surroundings. Also Miss Austen was an unsupressable romantinc and optimist, with a wonderful grounding of common sense. Many a young woman could learn a lot by reading Jane Austen at a young age.
