Just Started...

In an experiment with Kindle for the Blackberry (Amazon's free "reader" application), I have download Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. So far I'm not sure if my success at following Austen's writing style isn't because I seen a couple of versions of the story as movies...

About Sense and Sensibility:

The death of Henry Dashwood forces his daughters and their mother to give up their comfortable home and fashionable lifestyle. Stuck in a modest rural cottage, the eldest Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, despair over their prospects for society or marriage. Practical Elinor, silently pining over a romance that never had the chance to blossom, tries to steady her flighty, energetic sister, as Marianne is swept off of her feet by a dashing country gentleman. As passions are flamed, the "sensible" (or highly sensitive) Marianne must learn to look hard at the man who seems like a perfect match. But Elinor, whose "sense," (or caution) prevents her from expressing her deeply-felt emotions, must learn to believe that, against all hope, love may still find its way back to her.
