I love that book. It's so sad, but I suppose that's most of its charm.

Emily Bronte writes a very nice tragedy without being overdone.

Every time I see that she only made it to 30 it makes me sad. I wonder what she'd think if she knew that we're still reading it today.

Thanks for the shout-out :D

I know exactly what you mean! I like to think of her reaction to knowing of the lasting impact she made.

Thanks for the shout-out :D

My pleasure! :)

What are the odds that Kate Bush song would accompany this post? Talk about synchronicity! Have you heard she's playing 22 live dates in London soon after 35 years of no touring?

I'm so, so excited that she's touring again!!! *flails*

Thanks for the Birthday wishes! August 20th is H.P. Lovecraft's B-day as well; perhaps that's why I write Horror! :D
