Thanks for the envelopes! I love them. Thanks for the letter too! I don't know that many other people who are big fans of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell... odd, because it's in every library! It's actually the book that got me to start reading Jane Austen after I read an interview with the author where she said that Emma was her favorite book! From the same interview, I also ended up reading An Instance of the Fingerpost by Iain Pears-- I recommend it if you haven't read it already! Thanks again-- I love getting letters.
