Jane Austen, A to Z: What Would Jane Do?

How many times a day do you wish you had something witty to say? What would Jane Austen do? I have discovered two books that could help us figure out what Jane Austen might have done.

Jane Austen, A to Z: Sense and Sensibility

I bought the book, Sense and Sensibility. I probably read about 1/4 of it before I switched to the audiobook. Thank goodness for Librivox.

Several different versions of theContinue reading “Jane Austen, A to Z: Sense and Sensibility”

Jane Austen, A to Z: Pride and Prejudice

I have to confess that I had never read Pride and Prejudice before. Ever. It was never assigned reading in college – not even in the Victorian novel class. So last night, I finished reading it. It took a bit longer than I expected to become emotionally involved with the story. Some people seem toContinue reading “Jane Austen, A to Z: Pride and Prejudice”

Jane Austen, A to Z: Northanger Abbey

Technically, I didn’t read Northanger Abbey. I listened to the audiobook. It was extremely enjoyable to tend to my indoor garden or drive around town and listen to a book. I also started to watch Northanger Abbey on Amazon Prime. Hopefully, I’ll finish it this week. Northanger Abbey is a bit of a satire ofContinue reading “Jane Austen, A to Z: Northanger Abbey”
