William Shakespeare or Jane Austen?

That was a question my sister sent my via Facebook message a couple weekends ago. I was at fundraiser with a friend at the time. She’s an avid reader like me, so I knew she’d appreciate how hard a decision that was for me to make.

For those wondering, my sister was ordering my birthday present.

I chose Jane Austen. I then sent my sister the books I’ve read by her: Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park. You know, just in case she was shopping for books. She then asked me my favorite Austen book, or at least my top 3. Of course, Pride and Prejudice is my favorite. But I also listed Emma and Mansfield Park. She thanked me and then later told me my present was ordered. Then she declared herself to be the best sister ever.

That statement is yet to be determined as my birthday is Wednesday and I won’t see my sister until Friday. So I’ll let you know what she has gotten me.

For those wondering, had I chosen William Shakespeare, my favorite play is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
