“No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. She will not want new fashions nor regret the loss of expensive diversions or variety of company if she can be amused with an author in her closet.”

I bought these books after looking at Jessica’s site. It is a REALLY fun site, so I took the plunge and bought two stories.
