On my list of things to do is read more. Christi and I were trying to come up with an Emma-like list of books to read, but were unable to think of more than a few titles. Anything you guys could recommend would be greatly appreciated.

Also on my list of things to do -- in the top 5, actually -- is to finally finish the Christopher/Georgiana saga. I consolidated the entirety of Blind Luck so far into one file and have been rereading bits of it and piecing together other bits of backstory to try to get back into the game. Unfortunately, it's only made me want to rewrite almost the entire thing again. It has also made me realize that I have an annoying habit of avoiding action words by saying something is "not" something else. Think Pinnocchio from Shrek, when he's all "I can tell you where he's not....." It's like that, and it makes me want to hit myself. And on top of that, I've also discovered several historical errors. *sigh*

I am almost done writing this incarnation, though.

On listology they have the full list of the 1001 books you should read before you die. I've been ticking off the nineteenth century stuff and earlier ( v slowly)

I just read the Absentee by Maria Edgeworth which was quite good and interesting to read Austen's contemporaries

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweeashy Jaimie Ford was excellent.
