Holy SHIT BATMAN!!! There be NiNjAs in that book. DAMN, I gotta go read it now. me love ninjas.

I'm reading that right now! I particularly enjoyed the image of Elizabeth Bennett eating a ninja's heart :)

I was invited to join a book club and was so friggin excited. Until I started reading.... I'm not stoopid, and I totally love Jen Lancaster, but Ms. Austen is, well, hard. And I really don't want to have to work any harder than I have to to understand a book.

But I'd be all over the ninja thing.

I'm waiting to read this one. I'm saving it for the beach next week :) I love Austen normally though...I have a feeling that Ninjas will only enhance her.

You know who needs some ninja's and zombies and maybe a few werewolves thrown in? Holden Caufield. Oh and the Grapes of Wrath along with The Old Man and the Sea. Someone really needs to spice that shizzle up.

And in case you can't tell (which I'm sure you can't due to my stunning lack of talent in the grammar department) I'm also an English major. In CA just speaking English qualifies you for that degree.

Your use of English is OK! But was a university education really necessary to learn how to punctuate?

The problem -- and blessing -- of English is that you can do fantastically odd things with it. You have good 'standard' grammar, but where's the FUN in that?

My most interesting turns of phrase have come from reading works by Shakespeare and Dumas and Tolkein. You can do awesome things with the language but it's also pointless to reinvent the wheel.

I'm not saying Pride & Prejudice is a seminal piece of English literature, but you certainly learn something by reading it -- you actually learn quite a lot that might sneak up on you when you least expect it to. Education's weird like that.
