expansion

Reading (in my opinion) expands a person. It’s good on all fronts.

Emma
by Jane Austen

Ok. Delightful story, of course. You can gain the same knowledge by watching the movie and spend a lot less time. The last 80 pages in the book were given 6 minutes in the movie . . . which was plenty. The movie only changes slight details (and cuts out some parts not completely pertinent to the plot). I will always be on the watch for my Mr. Knightley.
