I have to admit that I have only read 3 of them so far.......Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey. My fav so far is P&P. I plan to buy the other 3 books in July because my finances this month don't allow any book purchases.
Dutchgirl...Jane is the best and I know what you mean about her sly social commentary. I love that.
I love Jane Austen! The first book I really read by her was Northanger Abbey which some scenes literally had me laughing out loud. I next read P&P and am working my way through Sense and Sensibility. Although S&S is my favorite story-wise, I'm not having an easy go of the book. I really want to read Persuasion and then Mansfield Park!
