Read in September, 2007

I realized about halfway through this series that I've never actually read "Emma" since I had no clue what was going to happen next. This is a great introduction to the classic, though, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's had trouble getting interested in 19th century British romance novels. However, the written story is a bit weak (there are a lot of pauses/face shots/the reader coming into the middle of a conversation) so be forewarned. I'd borrow it from the library if you can.

EDIT: After reading the whole series, I'm a bit perterbed that it took so long for the story to get started. If it were possible to just read the last few books, I'd recommend that.

There's a lot of author monologue in the back of these books, especially about the research on British places/historical fashions/maids, and they author notes are usually illustrated.

The Library Lady This has got nothing to do with the Jane Austen novel!
