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.

71. Emma by Jane Austen
I really had to persevere to finish this book as I did not enjoy reading it. Emma Wodehouse, the title character, fancies herself as a matchmaker for her friends but vows that she will never marry. You can guess where this is all leading. Again, I have to say that I do not find Austen's characters sympathetic or very interesting. Of the five of her six novels I've read, Northanger Abbey is still by far my favourite.
