This is adapted from the Borough Press’ list, which had I Forgot I Owned It. This has never happened to me because I have a a weird long-term memory which applies well to stories. However, due to the size of my To Be Read pile, there are a few of my past-reads which are a bit hazy. Worst of all is Emma. I have seen no fewer than three adaptations of this novel, four if we include Clueless which I think we really should. I definitely remember beginning to read it and have vague memories of different stages of the novel but I am actually not sure if I ever finished it – either way, I know exactly what happens thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow and Romola Garai (and there’s an annoying lady on Youtube currently playing her in Emma Approved), but that only muddles the issue further. Have I read Emma? Is it really possible that there’s an Austen novel out there which I never finished? Also, given that my copy is in the Schrodinger’s box of my parents’ attic, can I justify buying it again on the off chance that I haven’t read it yet?
