You buy yet another edition of a set of books you already own several editons of.

Yes, my friends, I just ordered the Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen.

My reasons are very good, though. First, it includes some works which I don’t have yet– her Juvenalia, Sanditon, and The Watsons. Second, whenever you write scholarly criticism on Austen (which I’d like to do), they prefer that you cite R.W. Chapman’s editions. Which I don’t didn’t own.

And third, they were way on sale, and I just got the second part of my student loan, so I’m feeling rich.

Now I just need a nice edition of her letters. . .
