If "Two or Three" May Be Persuaded . . .

Yes, it's a mug. And so?

I really, really, really want to reread Jane Austen's Persuasion this month.

There are other things that need doing--heck, other books that need reading--and a poem that needs writing, but it must be Persuasion that I blog about this month (and maybe the next) or I will spontaneously combust and you will never hear from me again. (But no pressure to say yes or anything.)

Now . . . which one or two of you is with me???

I might be persuaded...

Jenny said...

Oh man! I'd love to join you but I can't this month. :( Enjoy! Persuasion is my favorite Austen.

Darwin said...

I'll read Persuasion with you.

--MrsDarwin, too lazy to log her husband out.

FrB -- Okay, my checkbook is out. What would it take to tip you over?

Jenny -- That's all right! =) If you remember the story, you can still join the weekly (or fortnightly) discussions. Whichever the rest of the "Book Clubbers" decide on.

By the way, Persuasion is my favourite Austen novel, too! The first time I read it, I thought it made Pride and Prejudice look like a Sweet Valley High book . . . #themsfightingwords ;-)

But the first time was also the only time, and I feel due for a reread. I hope you can stop by now and then. =)

Mrs. Darwin -- *weeping in incoherent, irrational joy*

Oh how I love this book! I want to re-read too, but I can't this month. I've got it on my list for re-reading though, hopefully in September or October.

Darwin said...

Actually I (the real Darwin, writing from work) could read it too. Or at least, listen to it. I've got an complete audio book and I can load it up for the commute. What the hey.

Melissa -- That's okay. If you review it for September or October, then you can host the after party. ;-)

Darwin -- I know I've always been outnumbered by you two, but I've never really felt it until now. LOL! Welcome aboard! I hope to get the first Persuasion post up by Thursday this week.

And I check the calendar and see that it is Thursday this week! =P

How about Monday next week?

Is it any good asking why your title picture up there looks like a mug?

Belfry Bat said...

Oh,... yes, I see... sorry I asked!

Enbrethiliel said...

Actually, I had been hoping someone would ask. =P I'm using an image of a mug (which in turn uses an image of the Penguin cover) because I couldn't find a single cover of Persuasion that I liked!

Darwin said...

MrsDarwin sez:

I love that mug. I want one. I want a set of Austen mugs.

In an ideal world, these "Two or Three" Book Club post would be vlogs, featuring Yours Truly sipping tea from that very mug.

And because I'd also be wildly rich in that world, there would be free mugs for everyone!!!

amy said...

Yay, Persuasion! It was my first and is still my favorite Austen novel. It'll take a few days to dig out my copy.

Welcome, Amy! =D I'm glad you're going to be joining us. Since we're reading four chapters a week, it shouldn't take too long to catch up. =)
