"Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen

Catherine is very upset because Isabella, who is engaged to Catherine's brother, has been flirting with Captain Tilney, the brother of Catherine's love interest.

"The Law of Life" and "Nam-bok the Unveracious" by Jack London

I read these short stories this morning, enjoying the excellent inagery and the straightforward and clear style of writing. Here in late spring in pleasant Rhode Island, it was fun to imagine the snowy and frozen scenery in the Klondike of the late 19th century.
