Dispelling the assumption that all lovers of 19th Century literature would be prejudiced against 21st Century technology, Phyllis Fine writes in OMMA
magazine that some members of The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA
) are "enthusiastic e-cheerleaders" of the decidedly modern ebook
proliferation. Fine reported that the Austen fans were "using words like 'love' to describe their relationship with the [e-reader] devices."
It's perfectly sensible, of course - why not use any means available to access Mr. Darcy?
