Things you’ll find in a secondhand bookshop if you look hard enough: A beautiful edition (possibly a donation) of Jane Eyre which was a wedding anniversary present to someone in 1985.

favorite literary classics ◆ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë ◆ 1847

“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! - I have as much soul as you, - and full as much heart!
