Jane Austen Birthday and Book Pollyanna

On Saturday, December 17th we joined together for our annual celebration of Jane's Birthday along with our Book Pollyanna.

We had a lot of wonderful treats to snack on during our discussion of Sense and Sensibility. I shared a newly favorite line of "I have not wanted syllables where actions have spoken so plainly."

We then added to our list of "Read Jane - Now What?" We really are a great group readers.
