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.

70. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I have to confess that after reading the first quarter of this novel I thought, "It's about a silly woman who wants to get her five daughters married off". I did not find any of the characters sympathetic. However, since I am very interested in Georgian England,I persevered and I'm glad I did. The true characters of the young men, who are prospective husbands for the sisters, are gradually revealed and things get more interesting.
