      Rhapsody – it sure seems like people either absolutely love Wuthering Heights, or absolutely hate it.

    Great links. I happen to be the one who loves Wuthering Heights, I think it is one of the best romance stories, albeit tragic.
    I laughed when I read some of the insults Ms. Bookish posted. Good way to start a day.

    Also, thank you for mentioning my giveaway. It’s very nice of you.
