When someone at work leaves brand new books for the taking in the break room 👌
Firstly, this book is extremely useful for anyone who wants to learn more about 19th century English social culture. Plus the cover art is really beautiful. I recently discovered that my essay on Jane Austen's Persuasion is being published. I've been working on this project for a little over a year. It first began as my senior thesis, at which point it was 30 + pages long. I spent months cutting it down to 12 pages and finding new credible sources to use before sending it off. I'm super happy, but the work isn't done. Today I'm spending time making the revisions suggested by the reviewer. Wish me luck, because I'm already exhausted.
As an addendum to yesterday's post, I bought this book during a particularly intense Sherlock Holmes phase. Although I can't ever hope to have the deduction skills that make this fictional detective so unique, I can at least try... Right?
This Halloween season I have really been into mysteries. Earlier in the year I got into Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None being my favorite book, but now in October I have been reading Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock stories. I've always been a fan of the movies and the BBC adaptation. And here is a book that adapts the original stories as contemporary authors rewrite the tales we know and love. Also, take note of Legolas getting a peek on the right hand side.
