Can I Persuade you?

To join in on the Persuasion book club discussion happening over at Simply Serina?? I confess I haven't read it in a few years. I meant to catch up this week, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe during nap time today (when I really should be cleaning..hee hee).
I am looking forward to reading some in my awesome antique copy that I found at Goodwill a year ago. There is no copyright date, but the inscription that someone wrote after their name says "1910".  Here are a couple of photos of it. Isn't it cool?

I love how the pages don't line up on the edges and the tissue paper over the drawings. Makes me feel very Jane Austeny just holding the book!

I am SOOOOO jellous!!! I LOVE old books and that one is gorgeous! I would love to join the group but I just can't remember to look for it when I am out and well unless it is a beautiful old antique I don't want to buy it. The one at my library was due back in Oct of 2006 so they will be ordering a new one but it will be weeks to months before it is available. Tell me how it goes.
