Till, you must have had a premonition that I am also a Jane Austen fan,
although initially (way back in high school) I recoiled at her work because
it seemed too "girlie."   After several failed attempts to hooked on P&P,
two good friends (both female) persauded me to give "Persuasion" a go...and
I've been an Austen fan ever since. Ironically, at this very moment our
family (all females but me) is plowing through the JA movies and books.
