Happy #AusteninAugust Littens! I kicked it off a day early with #lifeisntfairfax last night and I highly recommend it

post image

Looking for this old photo for #chawtonhousephotochallenge I'm doing on Instagram. Thought I would use for today's #Pemberlittens post. W/ #NorthangerAbbeyNovember is coming to and end. Time to make a Dec Stack. Will concentrate on P & Prejudice retellings I didn't get to in Oct since N Abbey retellings are scheduled for Jan. @sprainedbrain

Previous post 2yrs ago: Of course I brought home Lizzy, Darcy, & Jane. 😊

sprainedbrain Good idea for December! 14mo

I love how this takes Austen lore of Cassandra burning Jane's letters and spins a story around that. It's the perfect way to write Austenesque.Lovely to see Cassandra shine.

I bought book couple months back because I'd heard such good things about it. Saved it for my #austeninaugust read. It was just delightful. A perfect addition to my Forever Shelf. 💜💜💜💜💜

Palimpsest @MargaretPinardAuthor funny, I recently used the phrase “soul balm” in a litsy post about my cat, but had not seen that phrase elsewhere. Book looks good! @Crinoline_Laphroaig 1y
MargaretPinardAuthor @Palimpsest I thought of ‘balm to my soul‘ then switched order for brevity! 😊🙏 1y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Palimpsest @MargaretPinardAuthor Soul Balm is just what I needed! 1y

Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!

I heard about the #austeninaugust photo challenge too late to join😢, so I decided to do my own version by reading some adaptations that have been on my TBR for too long. I might even end the month with a reread of my favorite Austen, Pride and Prejudice!

monalyisha YUM. It's definitely almost lunch-time here! Haha. 2y
sammisho @monalyisha This is a late breakfast for me! 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig It's never too late to join in! In whatever fashion that works for you! 2y
