"Friendship is the finest balm for the pangs of despised love."This is my favourite Austen quote but I'd forgotten which novel it comes from. Of course, it's Northanger Abbey.
Well that's the hardback budget blown for the year! I have now completed my collection of the handsome Everyman's Library Austen titles. There are seven in all - the six novels and Sanditon and Other Stories. A couple of years ago I visited Bath so I can now visualise the Pump Room and the streets as Catherine walks through them with Isabella. Anyone else fond of Northanger Abbey?
