    I Love Jane Austen

    I've read all of Jane Austen's books. I also try to read other authors like the Bronte sisters & Doyle. It's hard to undertand them at first you have to get used to the language & vocabulary. but i love them, i love going back in time.

    I don't understand contemporary classical music. Dissonant, atonal, thoughtless music. Why does it exist? Why don't people try to copy the Baroque style anymore?
