I did read Northanger Abbey last year. It wasn't my favorite Jane Austen book, but nevertheless I did enjoy reading it. I found it a bit different than her other books. My favorite is "Emma" by Jane Austen.

@Gigi Ann: Now, see, "Emma" is my least favorite Austen so far. Read it earlier this year and hated it. My favorite is "Persuasion."

I went and bought a bunch of Jane Austen's awhile back, when all the mash ups came out, figuring I needed to read up on what was being parodied so I could enjoy it more. Haven't managed to read any of them yet! Someday...

Here is my WWW if you'd like to visit!
