This hop is hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Every week bloggers answer a question and then visit other blogs that are participating. This week's question is: How do you turn down a review request?
A: Well, I haven't turned down a review request yet. I have been tempted once to do so but I relented. I guess if I had to or wanted to, I would thank the author/publisher for thinking of me and tell them that I am not interested.
The beginning:"The family of Dashwood had been long settled in Sussex." Page 56:"But whatever might be the particulars of their separation, her sister's affliction was indubitable; and she thought with the tenderest compassion of that violent sorrow which Marianne was in all probability not merely giving way to as a relief, but feeding and encouraging as a duty."
I am participating in "Austen in August" month over at The Book Rat, so many of my reads will concentrate on Jane Austen this month. I've only read Pride and Prejudice, so my goal is to read two other books of Austen's as well as other inspired Austen books.
I'm going to start with Austen's first published novel, Sense and Sensibility. I could already tell that this is a rich story.
