BOOK OF THE WEEK
I first read this book in March 2014 and have reviewed it three times since I first read it.
I still find it an easy to read and worthwhile book.

ART OF THE WEEK
I Was Here
I think many of us want to leave our mark on the world, so that someday someone in the future will know we were here. That is true today and apparently it was true 30,000 years ago, when someone left their handprint on the wall of a cave.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
The only authenticated picture of Jane Austen is this small pencil and watercolor sketch made by her sister, Cassandra, on display in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen’s plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security.
With the publication of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two other novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818. Her six full-length novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime. (Source: Wikipedia)
JOKE OF THE WEEK
I’m not sure buying this cake from Ikea was a good idea.
Unfortunately, as you start doing better and better in life (however you wish to define that), some of your friends are going to be envious. They may discourage you or definitely not feel glad for you. You can try to hang on to these “so called” friends, but it is never going to be as it once was. Our success to them is a betrayal.

However, I must warn you that this book will not change your life,
only you can do that.
