Lady Inspiration: Jane Austen

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”-Jane Austen

So true, Jane. So true. Right now I’m reading two books: Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt. The first is so genuinely creepy/scary that I can’t read it at night, and the other is about someone who dies of AIDS (not a spoiler alert, it happens in the very beginning). So, you know, things are pretty cheery around here.

What are you guys reading? Hopefully your choices are slightly less disturbing than mine.
