This week's theme is NUMBERS. Here's my selection from Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen:

Their joy on this meeting was very great, as well it might, since they had been contented to know nothing of each other for the last fifteen years.

A classic.. Isn't 15 years a long long time? I would just fail to recognize someone from that past...

@The Book Gatherer: I'm reading this for several challenges--but I would read it anyway. I love Austen!

I haven't read this Jane Austen book...I need to get busy!

Fifteen years is a long time between contacts....

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I have never read a Austen novel. There always seems to be to many new books to read before I get to a classic.

Hi Bev,
I have this book on my TBR list. Haven't gotten around to reading it, there are just too many books to read and not enough time. Thanks for stopping by. Have a question for you. How do you color your words? I've tried, I must not be doing it right or something. Can ya help me out? Just email me or leave a comment. Thanks. Have a great day!

Northanger Abbey is one of Austen's best but my favorite is persuasion.
Thanks for stopping by.
