November Reading List

I have been very busy crafting for the holidays so I haven't read much lately but here is what I did read.

Pride and Prejudice - by Jane Austen
Practically perfect in every way. Except I still can't reconcile that it is better to bribe Wickham to marry Lydia and be stuck with him for the rest of her life than a temporary indiscretion of a 16 year old.
7 out of 7 thimbles

Currently reading
Tending the heart of Virtue- by Vigen Guroian
An interesting book about how fairy tales teach virtue.

The Mahabharata
An Indian Epic Poem - the shortened version

I am finding it hard to read while knitting, I can't hold the book open.

Definitely bribing Wickham to marry Lydia. She deserves him after all. And he deserves her! I don't think the "indiscretion" would have gone away and as Elizabeth feared, would have ruined the family. That stupid Lydia would have ruined the chances for all her other sisters to have good marriages and when Mr. Bennet died, they'd lose everything and be at the mercy of that awful Mr. Collins. I don't think there is any other way it could have turned out.

Silly girl. My sister is armless and holds her books open with her toes. Surely your toes aren't knitting too...

And thanks for the eye candy.
