Hi everyone I'm Frankie and I'm a booktuber and bibliophile in Michigan, USA. Thanks so much Ashley for inviting me to this group! I mostly read mystery/thrillers and science fiction/fantasy, but I've been wanting to read more classics. Based on my experience with other read-a-longs, reading more challenging books in a group helps to gain other perspectives and clarify things, so I'm really looking forward to this!

AsocialOptimist (sarcasticpoet) Salutations everyone my name is Tanya, I'm from New York, and I love words, clever phrases, and self-growth. These are the reasons I have a broad reading history. I've read some classics over the years but haven't gotten around to Jane. I anticipate lots of fun thanks for the invite.

Agnes Roantree (a_rowantree) | 2 comments *Thank you, Ashley, for inviting me :)*
Hi, I'm Agnes & I'm from Moscow, Russia. Translator and aspiring writer by day and sometimes by night. I've read 'Persuasion' in English in my last year of High School, but looking forward to rereading it as my understanding wasn't that great back then. I've also read 'Northanger Abbey' in translation, but it should be really fun to read it in Original. I've read 'Pride and Prejudice' quite recently (couldn't put it down), so I guess I'll just join the conversation. Nice to meet you!
