On English literature

One day like today, 235 years ago, a girl called Jane Austen was born. She became a famous novelist telling the world how British customs were at that period of time. Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Mansfield Park are some of her most praised titles. Here you are another Austen's works, Emma. I hope you like it. Remember there's an even more interesting book as well! L.O.L.
