  • Hi! I don't like Jane Austen very much. Instead, I loved Madame Bovary when I read it, Emma can be hateful but her life is so sad, so… empty. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  • I love how you edited this video! I really liked the summary parts etc 🙂

    And you sure picked up some beautiful books!

  • Eid mubarak from Indonesia! ^^
    Hi, Can you review what's the differences between the classics edition? I'm planning to collect some classic books and haven't decided which edition to buy.
    Wordsworth is really cheap, do you have one?
