Mark Twain

So apparently Mark Twain was supposed to have hated Austen. This was quoted in the side bar of an article on CBC that said Austen’s picture is going to be on a British pound note: “he said ā€¦ every time I read Pride and Prejudice I want to dig her up and hit her over the skull with her own shinbone.”

Well, d’uh, Mr. Twain. If you hate the book so much, why do you keep reading it over and over? I think that deserves a few whacks with your own shinbone, right there.
