Hi Everyone,

Love this service ... I'm in danger of never reading another book ... so lovely to have it read to you :)

I'm a wife and mother of two terrific lil girls!

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE everything Jane Austen!
And I'm totally in love with Darcy!! ha ha ha ha

So anyway - I've listened to all the Austen Books multiple times (I especially love Elizabeth Clett? reading) ... but what next?
I'd love something in the same line - romantic, witty and fun.

Suggestions please???????
Thanx!!!
Stay Blessed.

Hi!

I would suggest books by Wilkie Collins, him and Jane Austen are my favorite classic English authors.
We have pplenty in the catalogue: http://librivox.org/newcatalog/search.php?title=&author=collins&status=complete&action=Search
This page will lead you to the completed works, there is one more in progress (the Guilty River) which should be done in some weeks.

Did you know that there are also plenty of works for children on LV for your two terrific girls?

I hope you'll find something, and I'm sure someone else will come along and give you their suggestions :D

Try "Patricia Brent, Spinster":

I really enjoyed the story, and Anna's accent is charming :)
