Three Things Serial: 19 – Comfortable Home, Happy Disposition, Vex

While I was browsing around the New York Times, I stumbled upon “The Janeiac Quiz.”  Since I’ve always enjoyed Jane Austen‘s books, I took the quiz — and failed miserably.  I’m sharing it because many of you enjoy those classics.  Emma is probably my favorite of Austen’s works and it is also the source of today’s Three Things.  I’ll take them … More Three Things Serial: 19 – Comfortable Home, Happy Disposition, Vex
