Book Beginnings: The Jane Austen Book Club

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme originally hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages but now hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.



The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler


"Each of us has a private Austen."


I am enjoying this book very much, but having a very hard time divorcing it from the movie.

I like the opening line, and I enjoyed the movie a lot too.

Here's my Book Beginning.

I read the book and thought it was a little weak. i think I would prefer the movie.

Love the power of that crisp opening sentence! Instantly invites inclusive understanding and recognition!

Nice opening. I saw the movie a while back and have the book, but haven't read it yet. Maybe it's been long enough now that I've forgotten enough of the movie to enjoy the book. My Friday post:
