I‘m very excited about one of my xmas presents. Not sure if Austen could spell ‘friendship‘ though! Mmm...which one to read first I wonder...

Birdsong28 😂. You should read Pride and Prejudice first 📚📖 2w

My first purchase for 2020. I think the year is off to a good start 😄

Deifio I have this! I already listened to Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park! Enjoy your new book! 🤩 4w
Katerina @Deifio The participation of David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch did it for me ;) I can't wait to start listening. 4w
Deifio That's why I bought it too! 😅 If you like Cumberbatch and his voice then you should check out Cabin Pressure its a comedy radio series. It's so funny 4w
Katerina @Deifio Ah, thanks :D I'll look for it.

Long time no see @ Litsy but I have a question! What‘s the best month to read Jane Austen ?! I‘ve made it to adulthood without reading a single one of her texts and I‘m finally ready !

I stopped by this cool little book store in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They had a great selection + collectors editions. They also had lots of Harry Potter stuff, and I got the above Jane Austen bumper sticker 😎🙃♥️

Be careful ordering from Thriftbooks!! I ordered what was pictured as a box set on their site and I recieved just the single book. I knew when I ordered it seemed too good of a deal, the actual description was vague but I was thinking I'd at least get some version of a box set or at the least a pretty book from the set pictured but I got 1 kinda ugly/a tad beat up book 😕

Maude @jillrhudy I did see that, there is a better copy of the book I received on Ebay for $48 but my copy looks like coffee splattered on it and it has small punctures like it was stabbed with fork maybe 🤔 Its not horribly noticable but I would assume a collector would take issue with it. 5mo

Oh my word, what a weekend! I met my sister in Louisville to attend our first Jane Austen Festival, and it was AMAZING. I wasn't expecting the level of commitment and quality that went into everything. Most people were dressed up impeccably, with high quality costumes and incredible details. The lectures and vendors were phenomenal, and we went to Regency beauty and perfume workshops that blew our minds. I will definitely be back next year!

I‘ve been wanting to try and read some Jane Austen, but have no idea which book I should start with. Any recommendations?

Librarybelle My favorite is Pride and Prejudice, which is probably her most well known. Persuasion is my next favorite, and it‘s way different from her other books - more somber, more reflective, and in some ways more mature. 10mo
JackOBotts I love Pride & Prejudice. If you‘re a fan of the movie Clueless, I‘d recommend Emma (in which the movie is based). I reread Emma recently and found myself picturing the Clueless cast, which was helpful. 🤣 10mo
Naj Either Emma or Pride and Prejudice. 10mo

Kenziejo @Librarybelle @JackOBotts @Naj Thanks for the recommendations guys! It looks like I‘ll start with Pride and Prejudice then. ☺️ 10mo
Naj @Kenziejo Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 10mo
JackOBotts Enjoy! It‘s a truth universally acknowledged that you cant go wrong with Jane Austen. (See what I did there, @Naj & @Librarybelle 😉🤓) 10mo
Librarybelle @JackOBotts 😂 So good! 10mo

kitabi_keeda @sudi it's in the blurb......seems true though ....."Calm and contemplative, you need someone who shares your desire to lie in a hammock in the Russian countryside, drink champagne, and think about the meaning of life. Both of you know that love, alas, is a fickle emotion, so you must cherish it for the fleeting moment in which it graces you." 13mo

I pondered all day about #inspiration . What inspires me? And then Jane Austen came to mind. Since I read Pride and Prejudice for the first time nearly 20 years ago, I‘ve devoured whatever I can about Jane. She inspires me every day with her words and her ideas. She was so strong and humorous, choosing a path that was frowned upon for women and yet looking for a way to earn a basic income. What Would Jane Do?? #gratitude30

MicrobeMom Wow! I was gonna chose Jane too but I decide on the ocean! 1y

Austen fans - I need your help!

So far I own Jane Austen‘s novels and other stories in German but I would like to own them in English too. The trouble is: There are so many beautiful editions that I cannot decide on one.

Which English editions of her novels do you think are the most beautiful?

Feel free to tag other Austen fans too 😅.

wanderinglynn That is such a hard question! Because so many beautiful editions! But my fave of P&P that I own is this one: https://amzn.to/2ycqWo4 and then I also love this clothbound 7-book set (which I haven‘t yet gotten, but so want): https://amzn.to/2QCeSU0 1y

There is a Jane Austen Pineapple Appreciation Society!? ?
The article further says, Alejandra Carles-Tolra's photo series "Where We Belong" documents days in the lives of these 'Janeites' as they go for walks, jump fences, or just doze, all in Regency paraphernalia. Here's another article to know more - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2BWwF9q094Tp8mC0MTvDfRS/the-jane-austen...
