British children's stories are just so charming. I loved the narration of this story, even if I didn't know quite enough about early 20th century life to really get everything. #childrenslit #classics

Chapter 51: The Beginning of a Longer Journey

Mr. Pegotty and Emily are going to Australia. I was thinking about how Emily shouldn‘t have been shamed into leaving, but at least she had somewhere to go. If someone today gets “canceled” by their society‘s norms, they don‘t have an Australia to start over in. #readalong #buddyread

Ruthiella Someone somewhere has probably written an imagined follow up of Uncle Peggotty and Emily‘s life down under, but let‘s hope Emily is able to let go of the shame she carries in her head. 3h

Though this is a book that many read in school, I somehow didn't. I picked it up this year in hopes to finally read this classic. This book was a great depiction of racial prejudice in the South. It touches on topics like oppression, bigotry, systemic racism, and the content of one's character. The topics discussed are still wildly relevant today!

Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront

Jane repays Rochester's move of dressing up as a gipsy by turning up unannounced to his blind presence and start talking to him as if she was living there all along.Jealous Rochester made me LOL,I truly missed this weirdo.I felt I can breath again now that St John's is out of our dear Jane's life. Blindness and losing one hand tamed Rochester instead of making him bitter and he is kind,we can now love him without feeling guilty❤️ #Pemberlittens

BarkingMadRun This is so true, and I was so proud of her for messing with him 🤣🤣 7h
nanuska_153 @BarkingMadRun Same, Jane really came out of her shell and now she is all banter, I can only love her more for it. It is amazing, cause with the Rochester created by my imagination after reading that I laughed out loud and thought: "he really does look a bit like Vulcan" ? 7h

Catherine and Isabella meet their respective brothers,Isabella and Mr Morlan soon pair together and Catherine has to entertain Mr Thorpe,she initially doesn't like him,with his "guess how fast is my horse";"guess how expensive is my carriage";"guess how ugly is that woman that just passed"and his worst crime:lack of interest in Udolpho!But after hearing how charming he finds her she is flattered enough to feel less uncomfortable #Pemberlittens

Thought it would be wise to familiarize myself with Irving Washington‘s classic before I start our #FearfulFall book - The Horseman. This was ok and my favorite use of a literary pumpkin 🎃 😁🧡 Light pick

BarbaraBB I‘m going to read Horseman next! How are you holding up? Still in the states? 😘 9h
BarbaraBB Is there a connection between this book and Horseman?? 9h
Cinfhen The Horseman is set in Sleepy Hollow and the legend of the headless horseman begins in the Washington short story. Many of the main characters are connected @BarbaraBB 8h
Cinfhen I‘m back in Israel. I will write to you and @Megabooks over the weekend @BarbaraBB Hope all‘s well by you ❣️ 8h
