I must admit I've read Pride and Prejudice (numerous times) and Northanger Abbey but not Jane Eyre. Until I won the novel in one of Kristy Cambron's giveaways.
While I've tried to read a few beloved classics, some bored me, plain and simple. That's awful to say, isn't it? I can't be a real bookworm if I haven't read Tolstoy or Dickens, right? (To be fair, I haven't yet tried to read Tolstoy, and I have read excerpts from A Christmas Carol by Dickens.)
Jane Eyre is one I plan to finish though. A few chapters in, and I already love it. One section actually made me laugh out loud on the bleachers at a softball game. Oh, and I caught a few people's attention as I read. They asked, "Are you reading that for school?"
I'm pretty sure I surprised with my, "No, not school. Just because."
It's been a little while since I allowed myself to read for the sake of reading--not because I had to write a review. I missed that. Thank the Lord for book giveaways!
Have you read Jane Eyre? What's your favorite kind of giveaway? (I'll be having another one soon!)
Amazon gift card? A book? A few books? Maybe a box of lemonheads? The lemonheads might just be my thing.
