"Sense & Sensibility" {by Jane Austen} Book Club Ideas


We had more of a "Sense & Sensibility" week in preparation for book club! Several days before our meeting we had ourselves a little girls movie night to watch my favorite movie of all time. The 1995 version of the book is absolutely  FABULOUS!! Every time I watch it I learn something new about a character that I didn't notice before. Do yourself a favor and get in your pj's, grab some chocolate and watch this movie the next time your boyfriend or husband is out of town!
Whenever I read Jane Austen or watch one of the movies, I get a little weird.
I tend to speak with an English accent for the rest of the day,  I expect my husband to escort me like a proper gentleman when we are running errands and I imagine myself living in an English cottage.
Those aren't weird thoughts and expectations right?
"I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them. And I protest, if I had any money to spare, I should buy a little land and build one myself, within a short distance of London, where I might drive myself down at any time, and collect a few friends about me and be happy. I advise everybody who is going to build, to build a cottage." 
                (The ONLY thing I have in common with John Dashwood!)
I had so much fun being transported into the world of Austen I felt the need to see what inspiration was out there. So I created this Etsy Sense & Sensibility treasury list to get you in the Jane Austen mood!

Hi guys!!! Wonderful post!!! I am currently a student and I am very concerned about this topic. I want to share a helpful resource.
Do My Assignment For Me - Is it a Good Idea?
The idea of hiring someone to do my assignment for me more might be tempting, but it's not a good idea. While there's nothing wrong with being creative, academic assignments require a great deal of research and writing. Moreover, students may lack the time to write assignments on their own, or might not have the necessary skills to do so. Hence, they often ask their parents or friends to do my assignment for me.

How to Write Paper Reviews?
Writing paper reviews requires research and time. It is also important to be accurate and fair. It is also necessary to explain your point of view and support it with evidence. For example, if you have read a book, you may include the reasons why you found the story interesting. Similarly, if you watched a movie, you might include why you found the film boring. Taking notes on the work is an important part of the review process. To write paper reviews , remember that you should include novel ideas, the strengths and weaknesses of the paper, as well as any improvements you can suggest.

Sense & Sensibility" is a classic theme, much like the quest for the best pizza deals in Sialkot. Just as Jane Austen's characters navigate life's complexities with wisdom and emotion, searching for great pizza deals requires a balance of practicality and craving for flavor. Whether it's the timeless literature or the timeless taste of pizza, both aspects add depth and satisfaction to our lives, satisfying our senses and sensibilities in different ways.
