Just a "Life" Post Today- Austen Heroine Quiz

My friend Patti had this on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to try out. I do like Jane Austen, and maybe I will add the audio books and movies to my Summer list too!

If you like to read, but can't seem to make the time between household tasks and paper-crafting (lol) - give audiobooks a try! They are wonderful while I do dishes, stamp, and drive (must be appropriate for the kids of course) - not so good when I'm blog surfing though! DH & I are huge Harry Potter fans, and Jim Dale (who reads the Potter novels for on audio) is one of the best we've heard! It is a very entertaining listen - and if your kids are old enough their sure to enjoy it too! Another good (middle school and above) kid fantasy series is the Eragon Trilogy. The third book is due this Fall. There are several good Christian series - I especially enjoyed Jan Karon's Mitford Series and am looking forward to the next Fr. Tim Series novel when it is released. anywho - back to Jane Austen...

Answering the questions was interesting, and I felt I had some very different answers in terms of personality charateristics, and nailed me correctly! Here's my results:

You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately.

I am Marianne Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

Have fun with this - and let me know which Austen Heroine YOU are! ENJOY!

I can't say I'm surprised. Marianne is passionate and free-spirited. That's our Jules!
