I am a middle aged man, and did not read Austen until a few years ago; my taste in literature not being for romances. But I loved her books. I suppose I am getting sentimental in my old bachelorhood.

I actually find Austen's books comforting and find myself wanting to converse in the same stylized English found in the dialogue of her characters. I usually refrain afraid people would think I was crazy.

ohh I love Austin .. I love everything she has written .. and reread her novels every chance I get =-)

Haha, very true Heartman. People would, I'm sure, think you were crazy. But the language is so much a part of the stories, I find myself thinking in it when I read....
