I just wanted to apologize for disappearing so abruptly and for so long, especially right in the middle of the Persuasion group read. Sometimes life just Happens and things get lost in the rush. Unfortunately, often one of those things is the blog. Anyway, I hope to be back posting semi-regularly. Is anyone still interested in finishing out Persuasion? I’m willing, but I’d like to know that at least a few people still want to read.
