Janeite Tag!

I am making a Tag.  More specifically, a Jane-Austen-themed tag.  It's been on my mind for awhile, time like the present! ;)  Here's how it works.

~Thank and link back to the person who tagged you.
~Tell how you were introduced to Jane Austen and share one fun fact about your Janeite life (this fun fact can be anywhere from "I stayed up all night reading Emma," to "I visited Chawton and met Anna Chancellor.").
~Answer the tagger's questions.
~Write seven questions of your own.
~Tag as few as one or as many as seven other Janeites and let them know you've tagged them.

To kick this off...
I was introduced to Jane Austen when I was thirteen and Out Of Books To Read (this is sort of my chronic state :P).  I asked my mother if she had any recommendations, especially classics, and she suggested that I read Emma.  I'll confess, I thought it dry as a bone at first, but I soldiered on through Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, and before long I was hooked.  I've never looked back. ;)
My Janeite life fun fact: I dressed up as Emma Woodhouse for a costume party last Halloween.
 My questions:
~Do you have a favorite Austen couple?  If so, what do you think their married life would be like?
~Who is your favorite minor character, in any of Miss Austen's books?
~List 3-7 of your favorite Austen quotes.
~How many JA books do you own?
~What Austen character do you think you're most like?
~Have you read the Juvenilia?
~Favorite movie/TV adaptation of an Austen novel?

My nominees:
~Miss Elliot 
~Evie Brandon
~Naomi Bennet

It's Jane Austen! I love her stories as movies but I really can't stand the books, or well book. I read Emma too when I was out of books to read. The movie was great and so was the Clueless adaption.. but I just couldn't continue. I didn't understand the ages or language and I gave up. Maybe I should've soldiered on like you did...
