From Jane Austen’s House Museum:
Jane Austen quote of the week: ‘My cold has been an off and on cold almost ever since you went away but never very bad.’ – Letter to Cassandra Austen, 9th Feb 1813.

From the Walden Woods project:

Today is Charles Dickens’ 200th birthday. What did Thoreau have to say about the preeminent Mr. Dickens? “De Quincey & Dickens have not moderation enough. They never stutter—they flow too readily.”—Written September 8, 1851, in his Journal.
“Summer” by Edith Wharton
Wonderful writing despite the ending being sad(although it could have been worse, lol all of Edith Wharton’s ending are except The Buccaneers, she didn’t finish it before she passed). “It was the beginning of a June afternoon. The springlike transparent sky shed a rain of silver sunshire on the roofs of the village, and on the pastures and larchwoods surrounding it. A little wind moved among the round white clouds on the shoulders of the hills, driving their shadows across the fields and down the grassy road”. 3.5 Teacups out of 5 -Kirk
