83% done with Jane Eyre

I swear to molasses, if Charlotte ends this novel with everyone too proud to let love have its way I’m going to be very annoyed.

Is this what pious virtue is – to reserve oneself in the presence of true love because their are some strings attached?

If you love someone, be with them. Quit being a proud pain in the butt and stop thinking you have to be miserable in this life to please the master of the next.

50% done with If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller

Maybe at this point in the novel I’m trying a little too hard to make meaning of what is happening.

First we get a noir-thriller about a dame and a dead body (fun read, too) that ends in a true cliffhanger. Next we are back at the publisher reading the letters of a man who relationship to the story I’ve sort of lost the threat to, but it doesn’t matter really because the fall into this rabbit hole is still fun.
