Books read during my sabbatical years - July 2006 to August 2007 & July 2012 to August 2013.
Why wait for another sabbatical? I've set a goal to read 53 books in 2014.

68. Jane's Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World by Claire Harman
Well documented account of Jane Austen's life, works and the posthumous popularity of her books. Interesting how film and television brought her novels to a new audience in the 1990s. I have read only two of her six books: Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. I've also see the Emma Thompson version of Sense and Sensibility. Need to put Pride an Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Emma on my "to read" list.
