This afternoon I went used bookstore shopping with my mom and found this gorgeous, 1933 edition of Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. It has pretty pencil and water color illustrations and vintage monogramming on the inside cover. It makes me so excited! I love old books! Definitely worth the $8.50 we paid for it!

↳ Jane Austen
Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature.
Her realism, biting irony and social commentary have gained her historical importance among scholars and critics.
From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer.
She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it. (x)
