Elinor Dashwood? Ummmm....

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.

I saw this quiz at my friend Sarah's blog and since I love all things Austen I had to take it. Elinor Dashwood? I'm flattered, I must say. I loved Sense & Sensibility, and Elinor has always been one of my favorite Austen characters. But am I like her? I do have a knack for getting things done without much fuss, I'm practical, and I'm often the voice of reason in my family. But I have to admit it's not often that I allow my head to rule. Usually it's my mouth. Yes, Elinor Dashwood is much better at keeping her opinions to herself than I am.

Anyway, I thought you'd enjoy finding out which Austen character you more closely resemble. Thank you, Sarah!

As I suspected, I also am Elinor Dashwood. I only suspected it because that's what you are.
The problem is that I've never read a Jane Austen book (or even seen a movie). I was supposed to read Pride & Prejudice my first year of college, but my mom sent it to me in Basic Training and I only read a little bit on the plane ride home. NO time!
I'm lame, I know. I did buy "Emma" for Emma when she was a baby, so at least I do own a couple books. :) Maybe one of us will read it someday.
