Just Read This

"Signing onto the Internet, she called up a popular search engine and typed in 'Jane Austen.'  The computer whirred softly for several seconds before the screen was filled with the information she requested.  Eliza stared at her monitor in disbelief; there were over a million and a half Web sites. Looking over at the cat now perched on the high stool, she sighed, 'I thought this was going to be easy.'"

--The Man Who Loved Jane Austen by Sally Smith O'Rourke, p.24

I laugh now, if only she knew how to do a proper search for what she's looking for.  I can only hope her searching skills get better, or she goes and asks for help, but I know she probably won't do either and yet she'll still find the information.
