  • I completely understand her horror:

    "The flight to London was uneventful. I had been afraid to fly and had planned to read Sense & Sensibility as my comfort literature during the flight. I was so looking forward to it! After we took off, I pulled it out of my bag and read the first line: “Sir Walter Elliot, of Kellynch Hall, in Somersetshire, was a man who, for his own amusement, never took up any book but the Baronetage…” Sir Walter Elliot? Kellynch Hall? With horror, I realized I’d accidentally packed Persuasion, and not Sense and Sensibility."
