Mr. Collins would not approve…

13 Oct

We are in trouble now!

 

…of libraries, Susan Wise Bauer, or this very blog!   When he visits the Bennets, they are searching for evening entertainment and ask him to read aloud to the ladies:

“Mr. Collins readily assented, and a book was produced; but on beholding it, (for everything announced it to be from a circulating library,) he started back, and begging pardon, protested that he never read novels.   Other books were produced, and after some deliberation he chose Fordyce’s Sermons…”

Sorry, Mr. Collins.  You don’t know what you are missing!    I’ve listened to some wonderful sermons in my day and have nothing against them, but I will also find a place for novels, the library, AND this blog.  So there!

    I know! I thought this said this volumes about his character, too bad he would never read those volumes.
