Go Gothic. You’ll never regret it!

I know, I know, but I couldn’t resist joining this. I started listening to Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen this morning when I found it on Library-to-Go (a place you can download audiobooks, if your library is connected). I can’t stop listening to it, it’s wonderful!

Anyway, if you want to join in, here are the links:
