At long last: "Stone Cold Jane Austen"

Reader, I finished it. I can now say that I've read all of Jane Austen's novels, a goal that has rather curiously sustained me these last few months.

I don't think of myself as a hero, but if I've inspired just one person with this undertaking, then it will have been worth it. To you, I say just keep believing in yourself and follow your dreams, and you too can achieve the impossible.

Here are links to the individual threads, with all of their typos and cheap jokes and clumsy insights:

The original announcement.
Persuasion
Northanger Abbey
Mansfield Park
Emma
Sense And Sensibility

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go never read a book again for the rest of my life.

I asked the Telegraph where Thomas Pynchon was. They said, "He don't work here."

If your list don't have Thomas Pynchon's seriocomic epic about World War II and Nixon, then your list could use some fixin'!!!
