I've only read two books since the last check-in:

18. The Lady of the Lakes: The True Love Story of Sir Walter Scott. Josi S. Kilpack. 2017. Shadow Mountain. [Source: Library] 

I am currently reading TWO books.

Cecilia by Fanny Burney
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Quotes to share:

Pleasure given in society, like money lent in usury, returns with interest to those who dispense it: ~ Fanny Burney

She got together her books, arranged them to her fancy, and secured to herself for the future occupation of her leisure hours, the exhaustless fund of entertainment which reading, that richest, highest, and noblest source of intellectual enjoyment, perpetually affords.~ Fanny Burney

Hope is never so elastic as when it springs from the ruins of terror. ~ Fanny Burney

You are much deceived; you have been reading your own mind, and thought you had read his. ~ Fanny Burney

“You mistake me, my dear. I have a high respect for your nerves. They are my old friends. I have heard you mention them with consideration these twenty years at least.” ~ Jane Austen

I don't know that I have a favorite book so far...I have enjoyed many of the books I've read.

I read Roderick Random! It's a bro slapstick comedy in 18th century prose. I wouldn't exactly call it a fun read, but I'm glad I did it.
