Sunday’s and Nicola’s recentish posts on Northanger Abbey triggered memories of the only time I have read this lovely novel. I was just out of graduate school, living with my parents and unable to find a librarian job. I was pretty discouraged and used books (as always) to cheer me up. Northanger Abbey was one of the bright spots in my life at that time so I’ll always have fond feelings for it.

As for the covers, I like no. 3 best. Which one do you like?

  1. This is my least favorite of all the books – because there’s such an abrupt shift in tone – but it’s still Austen! I’m not wild about any of the covers either, but I like #4 the best. It says “Jane Austen” if not specifically “Northanger Abbey”.

Thank you for reading and commenting.
