    Juliette Wells who informs us in her introduction that this is a reader s edition not a scholarly one With the needs and wishes of her students in mind Dr Wells has included in this edition an abundance of extras that make EMMA s world and its language as accessible as possible There are tips for first time readers of Austen a series of short pieces that illuminate aspects of everyday life that Austen s contemporaries would have taken for granted but which often elude today s readers a glossary of words that are now either obsolete or have evolved in meaning plus maps illustrations and more EMMA is a novel that like all of Jane Austen s major works I have read at least twenty times A great part of Austen s genius is that there is always something new to be discovered in her novels no matter how many times one reads them Now thanks to this lovely new edition there is even more For there is enough substance in this annotated edition to enlighten and entertain not only novice readers but Austen devotees As an object of beauty this book deserves high marks as well with its

    also harmonic according to 11 22 63 In fact the act of reading 11 22 63 seems to generate its own harmonies for as I entered the last third of the novel an ad for the event series based on the work caught my eye on the Hulu home screen Now I won t have to feel as sad as I usually would do upon turning the last page of such an enthralling mind expanding read I ll have eight episodes to look forward to Am hoping they do this brilliant work justice Surviving the Dreaded 14th 14 ways to survive Valentine s Day Has a holiday ever caused so much unhappiness I m not talking about how it was when we were kids Then it was all about giving everyone in class a paper valentine and those little heart candies Though kids could get mean about that too if left to their own devices like leaving out the kids nobody talked to As adults we re supposed to be more equipped to deal with that stuff but it takes a stalwart sort to withstand the collective anxiety in the run up to Valentine s Day let alone the day itself If you re not in a relationship the ads for jewels and bouquets and V Day menus seem to be mocking your lack of a BF if you re in a relationship it s sadly easy to get caught up in expectations and there s nothing less romantic than thinking what s he going to get me and it had better not be cheap or unromantic Or Is he going to take me out and somewhere good for a change or even worse Is he finally going to propose It s enough to make you want to go underground

    strongest impulse is to say no Except that she doesn t say no After years of giving into extreme shyness and its attendant fears of public exposure and ridicule after years of saying no to everything that would make an introvert shudder Shonda Rhimes forces herself to say yes That journey is the essence of her book YEAR OF YES With humor generosity and tremendous relatability the author reveals the extent of her terror and how she blasted through it I am loving this book which I m listening to on audiobook beautifully narrated by the author herself Here s a clip of Shonda Rhimes on the Stephen Colbert show I m looking forward to listening to the rest of the book As someone who spent her childhood as an extremely shy person and still sometimes fights those tendencies I highly recommend YEAR OF YES to anyone who wants to break the cycle of no and step outside of their comfort zone What I m Reading 11 22 63 by Stephen King I ve decided that the definition of unputdownable in the OED should now be 11 22 63 by Stephen King I have lost sleep and work time racing through yet savoring every word of this masterfully written time travel what if alternate reality tale of a man who travels back through a time warp rabbit hole in the back of a diner that lands him in 1958 where he must spend the next five years planning how to thwart the assassination of JFK On the way there is more of the past to tamper with survive and fall in love with especially because it is where he meets his soulmate But nothing is ever easy when it comes to changing the past no sir The past will do
