Here we are discussing the last few chapters of the book. This is the emotional climax, where Anne finally feels something other than regret. I remember the emotional climax happening very differently. I credit all the viewings of modern adaptations. Ok, one adaptation repeatedly. It always felt more climatic in the movie adaptation. As I… Continue reading Persuasion Read-a-Long: Final Chapters
I woke up this morning to an email confirming the new dates for Modern Persuasion’s release! I’m can’t tell you how anxious I have been about this.

In the original story, there is a trip to Lyme. During that trip Anne meets three people who are good friends of Captain Wentworth. These three people met him after everything happened with Anne.

We all know I love a good monthly challenge. One of the things I have enjoyed about the Postcard Club so far this year has been sending analog mail to people.
Welcome to week 2 of our Persuasion Read-a-Long. This week we are discussing chapters 7 -13. SO MUCH happens in these chapters. We go from 0- 60 in one moment. How? Why?

Every time I re-read Persuasion, I take something new away. This time I am far more focused on Lady Russell than I ever have been before. While we discuss that on a different post, it made me want to focus on her counterpart in Modern Persuasion. While Emma may treat her father like a child,… Continue reading Getting to Know Modern Persuasion: Meet Karen
I know, I was suppose to do this post over a week ago. I was busy being sick and everything got thrown off. My 30 days of editing Wikipedia are over. It was far more difficult this year to do just 30 days than it was last year to do 100. I think it was… Continue reading 30 Days of Wikipedia: January Wrap-up
