Thursday Book Teaser: Northanger Abbey

A weekly meme created by Carole (me) to share excerpts and book teasers from books. Anyone can join, just make sure not to give away any spoilers.

Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend! I'm really excited for Friday, because it is my first day of classroom observation. I'll be setting in a classroom and observing the students and especially the teacher for 20 hours. What makes it even more exciting is that my first school is an alternative school. ^.^ That's the teaching I would like to do: help the outcasts get the education they deserve in an environment that is there for them. I can't wait to run my own classroom.

Well this week I'll be sharing a teaser from Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. This time I just randomly flipped to a random page. I closed my eyes and let my finger land on a random spot. 

Page Number: 92
Sentence beginning at: starting at paragraph 4

"This bold surmise, however, she soon learnt comprehended but half the fact. The anxious affection, which she was accused of having continually watched in Isabella's every look and action, had, in the course of their yesterday's party, received the delightful confession of an equal love. Her heart and faith were alike engaged to James - Never had Catherine listened to any thing so full interest, wonder, and joy....."

I would continue but a big spoiler lay in the next couple of sentences! haha.
