Books etc.

pretty much all kind of books, stories, whatever
The Making of a Marchioness - Frances Hodgson Burnett, C.D. Williams Another adult Burnett. I like the first part better, Emily looks such a nice, capable woman that could take care her own life, thank you very much. The romance (or the inexistence of it) was touching but not puke inducing. In the second part she seemed to be abandoning her self-reliance and became this adoring sugar sweet wife. I suppose this is real and valid thing to happen even now. It's so easy and comfortable to slip into it. I know I would gladly do it. It sounds as if I don't approve of stay at home houswifes, it's not that.. I might even call it envy, heh, not such a feminist am I? I would need to think more about it...
