I have been, and will continue for a little while to be, on a short hiatus from reading blog-appropriate work. Due to an upcoming exhibit on Jane Austen, in which I will be teaching, at the wonderful Morgan Library and Museum, I’ve recently read the phenomenal Sense and Sensibility. (My previous Jane Austen reads skewed towards the more obscure: Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park). Do I really have anything new to say about that work? Not so much. I’ll spare you. And now, I am trying Anna Karenina. Again. I know–it’s good. What’s my problem? I don’t know. Whatever it is, I hope I get over it and finish the book before the new Lorrie Moore arrives in the mail, because I won’t have the will power to do anything else once I get it in my hands.  Wish me luck.
