I enjoyed every minute of this book- so much fun and what a bizarre and interesting subculture
Are you a proud Janeite? Maybe you‘re a Darcy fangirl, a Persuasion purist, or an Emma enthusiast? Perhaps you‘re just Austen-curious?
If any of these things are true, and you‘re not already following the incredible #JaneissarilyAustentatious group, you really should fix that right now. You might be missing some important Janeish info! ❤️
I just want to thank everyone who participated in the #JaneAustenSwap, both for joining us and preparing such wonderful gifts for each other, and also for your patience with us as we tried out hosting for the first time. I have loved seeing all of your opening posts and connecting with so many fellow Austen fans.
Huge thanks to my lovely co-host, Elizabeth. I don‘t even want to imagine trying to host on my own. You are amazing!
One last post! We are so close to June 1, and @mabell and I still have a few holes in our tracker. We want to make sure that everyone who signed up has a fantastic opening day on Friday!
If you‘re tagged, please let us know if you have received your swap package (in comments or by email).
Also, @Beckykearns can you please confirm that you have sent your package and when it is to be delivered?
Thank you so much, everyone! ❤️
Got my #janeaustenswap items all wrapped up, just need to pop in the card and one more thing, then they‘re ready to ✈️ .
Oh my goodness! Look at this giant box #JaneAustenSwap goodness that arrived today!
Since I have to resist opening it for the next FORTY-EIGHT days, I have placed it on top of my tallest bookcase. 😂
I‘m so excited, @heikemarie ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Attention, #JaneAustenSwap participants! Matches have been made, so please check your email and reply (if you haven‘t already).
Things I have learned cohosting a swap for the first time:
1. Sleep is overrated.
2. I have no patience for copy/paste.
3. @mabell is incredible: best cohost ever!
4. We have some very cool people signed up. Loved all of your survey responses!
5. Litsy people rock (not news).
6. We love Jane Austen!
Sharing again... we have over 50 Jane fans participating so far, but there‘s another week for signups. 😃
This swap is open internationally!
Do you love Jane Austen? Would you like to give and receive some fun Austen swag with a fellow Austen fan? If so, @mabell and I have the swap for you!

So ... I told myself “no more swaps for a while” but I HAD to do this one. Thank you to @sprainedbrain and @mabell for completely ruining my resolution. 😉
Join me in my “swap weakness” and sign up here:
The author of this somewhat anthropological work hunts down and travels with obsessive Jane Austen fans. Her journeys take her from literary site pilgrimages, to conferences, to the annual Jane Austen ball ... in full period costume. #GeekLove, indeed! #BookLove17
