Took a quick detour to the Henley Regatta before heading off to France! #BackpackEurope

I attempted an Austen-inspired mock-tail with an Earl Gray syrup, hibiscus (instead of rose) and seltzer water. It turned out really weird, but I had fun!

If you‘re interested in author-inspired cocktails, the recipe I tried to reinvent came from this great article: https://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2017/04/15-cocktails-inspired-by-literary-grea...

Reviewsbylola This is such a gorgeous edition! 2y
inthegreensandblues That is the prettiest cup! 2y
Linsy @Reviewsbylola I love it. I wish I had the other Austens just like it! 2y
Linsy @inthegreensandblues Thanks! I‘m obsessed with the Pioneer Woman stuff at Walmart. 2y

Mehso-so

It had been almost 15 years since I had read this one and getting back into it reminded me almost immediately how much I am not a fan of Emma. She is unwise to say the least in her decisions to meddle and matchmake. She is shallow in many ways. But as I read along, maybe it is my added years of experience this time around, I judged her less harshly. Not my favorite of Austen's but still... ❤

I've seen the movie and picked this one up but I'm not sure if I've ever read this from start the finish. Excited to get some reading in this morning, even during bath time!

I love making new realizations while reading old favorites! This particular one is small and about Jane Fairfax (pictured above from Emma Approved, which you should watch if you haven‘t—the videos are available on YouTube, and here‘s the link for the blog: http://www.emmaapproved.com/ ). Idea in spoiler below. #JaneAustenReadalong #EmmaReadalong

readinginthedark So, I‘ve always assumed that Mr. Fairfax came to Highbury to be with Jane, but I just realized that Jane decided to stay in Highbury instead of Ireland in the hopes of seeing Fairfax! He makes a comment to Emma about not being able to persuade his aunt to let him go abroad. For some reason, I‘ve always assumed that Jane just didn‘t want to be an inconvenience to her “adopted sister.” I don‘t know why this never occurred to me before! 2y
readinginthedark Also, how ironic is it (or perhaps intentional interest) that two people born but not raised or living in Highbury should meet and fall in love? 2y
JANEissarilyAUSTENtatious Loved watching Emma Approved! 2y
readinginthedark @JANEissarilyAUSTENtatious I know! I think the modern Emma adaptations have really been some of the best! 2y

The scene leading up to the proposal..Emma was walking in the gardens, where she was joined by Mr Knightley, and they walked together a bit in silence..

After Emma has done so many mistakes, she dances at one of the #balls with Mr. Knightley. It seems as if she begins to realise, what kind of man he really is. 😍

For all you Jane Austen-lovers like me out there, there's a really interesting article from the New York Times this weekend about how the language she uses in her books helps them endure. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/07/06/upshot/the-word-choices-that-explain-why-j...

QOTD: Do you prefer reading inside or outside? 💙

Good Sunday, everyone. 😊 How are you all this lovely day? It's kinda cold here. 😐 It keeps getting down to like 28°F here at night so everything gets very chilly in the morning. 😶 I'm currently hiding away from the world under my blankets. 😉

blankpagesofmine Outside or inside with a view always works for me! 3y

#bookishpetpeeves include audible books read with inappropriate accents... Americans reading British, British doing Southern and anyone, other than a Saffa, doing South African 😂 Also, publishers who change cover style mid-series! 😞
#marchintoreading

AWahle I especially dislike it when publishers change artistic styles completely halfway through a series. Even when I have to admit the newer covers may be nicer. 3y

alisahar @quirkyreader it is! It has a stamped date of 1957 inside. @Lacythebookworm I love it and it has great illustrations inside too. 3y

I think I'm crashing the #seasonsreading2016 party because it's Jane Austen's birthday today! My favorite #janeaustenadaptation is the 1996 "Emma." I totally want a friend group like this, where we host balls, pick strawberries in fields and have picnics. And if anyone would like to propose to me someday, please do the scene at the end of this movie. Or at least incorporate Rachel Portman's soundtrack. :p. Emma's issues were so relatable here.

Confession time: I have not read a single Jane Austen. I think I will have to change that in the next year. That being said, I do love this film adaptation! (And Paul Rudd!) #seasonsreadings2016

saresmoore As if! Just kidding. I also love Paul Rudd. :) 3y
alanacristin I just stumbled upon my unread copy of As If today and am moving it up the TBR. Much more appealing to me than Austen 😜 3y

When Jane Austen began writing Emma, she said of the titular Miss Woodhouse, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." Austen must have greatly underestimated her ability to craft relatable characters. Emma Woodhouse, in all of her many incarnations and iterations, is and always will be one of my favorite characters. #OctPhotoChallenge Day 4 #ClassicCharacter

#FlashbackFriday to my favorite Jane Austen book, Emma. While Pride & Prejudice and Northanger Abbey are other favorites, I just love the dynamic between Emma and Mr. Knightley. 😊I also love the BBC adaptation pictured above.

MysteryMe Classic Austen! Some say her masterpiece. Reading this on the NoteStream app - they just started releasing it in installments. They add in some great period images too! 💞 3y
Jediash1 @MysteryMe Pride and Prejudice often seems to get the most notoriety but Emma will always be my favorite. I like to reread it every couple years - it never gets old! :) 3y
