A book group on The Homeschool Lounge was reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen this month. In the past, my attempts to read her works have failed. I just wasn't able to get into them for some reason. But I decided to give this one a try, and not only made it through, but enjoyed it! Unfortunately having quiet time to read requires me to stay up late at night. This one was a little shorter than some of her other works, which helped with the motivation - it wasn't as intimidating!
