  2. Okay, so I have a confession to make....I've never read any of them! I know...that's a terrible thing, but I will. I've got Emma and it's actually next on my reading list.

  11. I've read four of them (P&P, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion) and have loved them all but I think my favorite might have been Persuasion. There was just something about that one that I connected with.

  13. I've read only three of them Emma, Pride and prejudice and Sence and Sencibility. And though i love them all i have to say that Pride and Prejudice is my favourite by far. I hope to read the rest as soon as i can but i don't thin i'll change my preference.
