really liked it
Recommended for: people who just love jane austen that much

Jessica is one of the best present-givers ever (and I know she takes pride in that). Last Christmas, along with my silver Ravenclaw bookmark clip, she gave me this book, partly as jab at me (duh) and partly because we both love Jane Austen (and Doctor Who marathons).

Jane Austen's Guide to Dating is, actually, a pretty insightful book about dating since Austen wrote such thorough, timeless archetypal characters who have thorough, timeless archetypal relationships (and no, there is no such thing as a real Mr. Darcy).

But it's also a very, very funny book (for people who like Jane Austen and thus get it) and a sly analysis of Austen's works and characters. This is one of my most-lent books of all time. It's had some impressive travels in its less-than-one-year tenure as my book.

In short, you should be friends with Jessica so you can get great presents like this, too.

Also, you should read this book.

Also, Jessica is great!
