What am I currently reading?

Venetia by Georgette Heyer
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

She is not, indeed, like most modern young ladies, to be known in half an hour: her modest worth, and fearful excellence, require both time and encouragement to show themselves. She does not, beautiful as she is, seize the soul by surprise, but, with more dangerous fascination, she steals it almost imperceptibly. ~ Fanny Burney
“You are in the right,” said Mrs. Selwyn, “not to watch time, lest you should be betrayed, unawares, into reflecting how you employ it.” “Egad, Ma’am,” cried he, “if Time thought no more of me than I do of Time, I believe I should bid defiance, for one while, to old age and wrinkles; for deuce take me, if ever I think about it at all.” ~ Fanny Burney
I have enjoyed every book I've read so far. Some are more quotable than others. But all have been solidly good.

Favorite book I've read so far...
Probably Bound Heart by Laura Frantz.

Oh, I didn't think to include Heyer novels; I just finished The Unknown Ajax. My post isn't up yet, I think it goes up tomorrow.

I am reading Sam Johnson/Boswell's Journey to the Hebrides. It's fun, but veeeerrry long and the print is TINY so I'm not moving fast.

Jean, yes Heyer counts!!! I look forward to reading your review of the Unknown Ajax. And I completely understand about long books with tiny print :)
