Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
There is a difference! Gemma took me a weekend to read, Jane took almost 3 weeks. I had forgotten the vocabulary involved, the words I should have looked up, the size of the very small print. There is something very quaint about sitting with a cuppa and the very small volume of Jane Eyre, almost Victorian! I picture a lovely young woman, her hair carefully pinned up, with a porcelain teapot at her side, reading in her favorite chair by the window in her prettiest dressing gown. Lovely story - visit it again.
