Reading if for Everybody

I recently finished a great book, Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. It is amazing how older works of fiction can appeal to audiences today.  I got an eBook of it from Project Gutenberg.  It’s a site full of free electronic copies of public domain works.  All the classics are there, not to mention a few books you’ve never heard of.  I found war-era cook books there.

Anyway, Northanger Abbey is about a young heroine who doesn’t embody to usual qualities of an heroine and her coming out into society.  She makes and loses friends, falls in love, gets her heart broken and saves face, and of course at the end she marries her true loves despite a few “problems”.  I found it sweet at many points and amusing.  Hopefully you will think so too.
