So you know that book, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters? It turns out that Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility is pretty much like that, only without any sea monsters. This is basically the tale of two sisters, neither of whom is a sea monster, and the path they find to both love and economic security, along which they encounter disappointments, excitements, and no sea monsters whatsoever.

But you don’t really need me to tell you that, because if you haven’t read any Jane Austen, you are either a small child or an illiterate cretin. (If the former, you’d better get around to it eventually, or else you’ll turn into the latter.)

The one tip I have to offer is that when you download this for your Kindle, you should get the better-formatted version from the MobileRead forums, because the Project Gutenberg version uses CAPITAL LETTERS instead of italics throughout, and it’s phenomenally annoying. (The biggest disappointment in getting an e-reader is finding out how lousy Project Gutenberg actually is. They are completely a bunch of chumps who have no idea what they’re doing, but since nobody ever bothered reading ebooks before, that hasn’t been obvious.)
