I wasn't interested in the actual selection that month so read Idle Thoughts instead. It was a good read, mostly. There were a couple sections that I ended up skimming, but overall it was good.

I hope The King of Elfland's Daughter makes a comeback. I've kind of set my heart on reading it. I'm glad, however, that I like quite a few of these titles.

Happy Boxing Day!

So, our first Book Club selection of 2013 is Persuasion by Jane Austen.

Happy reading.

I thought Persuasion would be one of the favourites of this vote. Looks like I'm going to get to read my first Austen. I always thought it would be P&P, but I was obviously wrong.

Persuasion is even better than P&P.

Persuasion will be my first Austin title as well. I'm looking forward to it.

I think that it is her masterpiece--even though it doesn't have Zombies. (yet).

The devil might be in the details, but the details are a slog for me. I tried not to skim, but failed. I can't cope with 15 tedious pages planning a walk before anyone takes a step!! Oh well, there are plenty of authors I can't manage without skimming, Austen is certainly in good company.

Sorry - missed the vote completely but will be delighted to join you in reading "Persuasion" - my favourite of Jane Austen's books from earlier readings. I shall be interested to read it again in good company.
