"Why yes, I am reading Jane Austen. And no, I'm not a college student."

So, I've been reading Pride and Prejudice the last few days and have already been twice approached by strangers wishing to talk about it with me. Once on the subway and once in a bar. Both women freely revealed crucial spoilers to me as though there were no chance that I didn't already know who Lizzy would end up with.

Of course, I did know full well who Lizzy ends up with, but I despair the odds of the unenlightened making it through unspoiled if they dare to read it in public.
