Austen stuff...

Since I am a big Jane Austen fan here are some things that I found around the net that involve her and her writings...

Do you know that there is a Jane Austen Society of America. Here is the Web link .

There is also a site called the Republic of Pemberley, everything you need to know about Jane, her novels and life.

Quotes (some are so true to me)

Where so many hours have been spent in convincing myself that I am right, is there not some reason to fear I may be wrong?

I do not want people to be agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them.

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

Find out which Jane Austen Heroine you are.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

I am so an Elinor Dashwood in public, shy and reserved but when you get to know me or I am at home with my family I am more of a Lizzie Bennett I think, very opinionated and self assertive.

I have been hooked on Jane Austen the last couple of days for some reason probably because I have lost my copy of the Pride and Prejudice DVD and It is my favorite movie of all time, it calms me down when I am upset or stressed. I also read her novels when I am in the same condition, they transcend me back to her time.

Ok enough about Jane today lets move on.
