Pride and Prejudice | Jane Austen
post image

Just reread this after a number of years, and I can‘t believe how much I loved it. I loved it even more this time around! What a relatable MC, and such fun. It was also the first time I read it on the gorgeous edition I got from my swap buddy last year‘s for the #janeaustenswap!

mabell Lovely photo! And the teacup!! 😍 12mo
Elisa Thank you! I picked up a bunch of mismatches teacups and saucers for a baby shower a couple of years ago, and now they reside with my Jane Austen and other historical fiction 😊 12mo

Another warm day to sit in the porch and read! (And work.) Drinking a protein smoothie in my awesome travel mug from @Avanders that I received earlier this year in the #JaneAustenswap!

Crazeedi I want your warm day to sit on my porch!😊 13mo
QuietlyLaura That travel cup is awesome! 😂 13mo

Elma Love the cup!! 13mo
wordslinger42 Where did you get that cup?! 😂 13mo
LeahBergen Such a great cup. 😆 13mo
4thhouseontheleft @Crazeedi Unfortunately it‘s not supposed to last much longer, or I would share the ☀️ ☺️@quietlylaura @Marilyncjackson @Elma It is awesome! @wordslinger42 I received it in a swap from @Avanders 13mo
Caroline2 Awesome!!! 😂 13mo
eanderson I love that cup! 13mo
Reviewsbylola Ha love it! 13mo
hilded I didn‘t recognize which Harry Hole book this was from the English title, it‘s quite different from the original one 😅 13mo
TheWordJar Just have to agree with everyone...that cup!!! 😂 13mo
Sharpeipup 😂 13mo
ravenlee 😂😂😂 13mo
BookNAround That cup!!! 13mo
4thhouseontheleft @hilded Is the original title something different than an animal? 13mo
hilded Yes, it‘s called ‘Panserhjerte‘, which would mean something in the line of ‘Armoured Heart‘ if I were to translate literally. 13mo
hilded Btw, that cup is awesome 👍 13mo
shelbyy That cup is hilarious! 😂 13mo
sprainedbrain I love that cup!! 13mo
mdm139 I laughed way to hard because of that cup 13mo
Beachesnbooks Omg that cup!!! 😂😂😂 13mo
batsy Brilliant 😂 13mo
TheAliceEvers I need that cup 😂 13mo
4thhouseontheleft @hilded It annoys me when publishers change a title for an American audience. A la HP and the Philospher‘s/Sorceror‘s Stone. 13mo
hilded Agree, especially when they change a British title, that doesn‘t make sense since their both in English anyway. Like this one were they added on 1/2 a death, why - lol 😂😅 13mo
hilded I mean, how can a person die 1/2 a time more? 😂😅 13mo
4thhouseontheleft @hilded 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 13mo
4thhouseontheleft @hilded I notice he used the phrase armored heart a few times in the book, including the last chapter! 13mo
hilded Interesting! I must confess I don‘t remember that. I read the book a long time ago - and while I do enjoy this genre for what it is; a quick entertaining read, they rarely stick. 13mo

post image

I finally got to pose my #JaneAustenSwap gifts from @LoverofLit! While waiting to open my #MakerSwap gifts lolol Thank you so much! I especially love the two letter collections! My PhD thesis, while I was aiming for that, was actually in handwriting and written essays and letters, so these are especially close to my heart! 💕

theresidentromantic Not present: my lovely, previously posted tote bag! Not present because it's currently holding all my stuff lol 2y
mabell How pretty! 😍 2y

The Shaping of Middle-Earth | J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien
post image

Litsy friends really do find the most amazing bookish gifts! This morning I‘ve got a bit of extra time so I‘m enjoying a cup of tea in my new mug from @Captivatedbybooks as a part of #JaneAustenSwap using the adorable book tea diffuser from @tpixie (sent with my most recent #CovertoCover book) while reading some of the commentary on the early Silmarillion for #YearofTolkien.

tpixie Love the mug!! Fun combo!!! I‘ve never tried that tea.... 😋 (edited) 2y
tpixie Love that you are still on a Tolkien journey!! 2y
BarbaraJean That diffuser is amazing! 😍☕️ 2y

MCYmermaid Awesome diffuser!! ☕️‼️ 2y
JazzFeathers Sounds like the perfect morning 😆 l'm on the train home from work. I too have a date with a certain professor 😀 2y
Daisey @tpixie The tea is good, although I need to work on the ratio a bit. This was too big of a mug for the diffuser. Also still like bing reading Tolkien! 2y
Daisey @BarbaraJean @MCYmermaid Agreed! I love it! 2y
Daisey @JazzFeathers It was a great morning, although I had less time than I thought and still haven‘t gotten far. I‘m hoping to make it half way through the commentary yet tonight. 2y
tpixie @Daisey 💚💚💚💚 2y

Persuasion (Revised) | Jane Austen
post image

Okay, I haven‘t read this one in years so I‘m joining the #PersuasionReadalong , @sammisho !

I‘m loving my new P&P mug and Earl Grey Creme de la Creme tea from the #JaneAustenSwap, @Melissa_J . That tea is wonderful. 😘😘


sammisho That tea sounds delicious 2y
Melissa_J I‘m so glad you like the tea! I‘m about to run out, but that‘s ok because I have an order about to arrive from Murchies! And that order is totally your fault - I loved the Balmoral Blend! 2y

LeahBergen @Melissa_J Haha! Did you? I think it‘s funny that we both bought each other (new to us) Canadian teas. And the same book, too! 😆 I really like the Balmoral Blend and will probably be placing an order for more. I bought the Royal Sampler box when I was at the store (it was on sale before the royal wedding, I believe). 2y
Bookish_B One of my favorites! 2y
catebutler This is my all time favourite Austen! Enjoy your re-read!! 2y
saresmoore How fun! 2y
BiblioLitten Tea date with Austen! Perfect 💞😊 2y
mabell So pretty and relaxing! ❤️ 2y
Aimeesue Crème de la crème tea? Miss Jean Brodie would be delighted. ? 2y
Cathythoughts Lovely picture 💫 2y
Moray_Reads Ooh, does the Earl Grey have extra flavours or is it crème de la crème just because it's so fancy? 2y
Reviewsbylola I need to pick up my copy because the serial version isn‘t holding my interest. 2y
LeahBergen @Bookish_B @catebutler One of my faves, too. I‘m SO enjoying this reread. 2y
LeahBergen @saresmoore It‘s wonderful (again!) 2y
LeahBergen @BiblioLitten It is! 😀 2y
LeahBergen @mabell 😘😘 2y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue I have that book and now must read it to understand your reference. 😆 2y
LeahBergen @Cathythoughts Thanks! 😘😘 2y
LeahBergen @Moray_Reads It‘s a Cream Earl Grey which is like the usual Earl Grey but with vanilla and cornflower petals (I believe!) 2y
LeahBergen @Reviewsbylola I think Jane definitely needs to be read on paper. 😄 2y
Moray_Reads @LeahBergen I have a similar one but mine has coconut too. Is a special blend that's only available once a month at the full moon 🌚 2y
LeahBergen @Moray_Reads That sounds good! Where do you buy it from that only sells on a full moon? 😂 I love it! 2y
Moray_Reads @LeahBergen http://www.adagio.com/black/earl_grey_bella_luna.html I get a lot of my tea from their UK branch, they're great and you get loyalty points for every order 😳 2y
Reviewsbylola Totally agree! 2y
LeahBergen @Moray_Reads Off to check it out! 2y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen Muriel Spark is one of my faves. She's a bit dark, but I like that. 2y
Aimeesue Just realized I have that same 1975 Folio edition too. I'm collecting all of those Austens! 😁 (edited) 2y
LeahBergen @Aimeesue I like these better than the newer Folio Austens. Shhhh! 😆 I have five (I just need Emma). 2y
Aimeesue @LeahBergen I like them better, too. They're very chevron-y! I have Emma, S&S, and Persuasion, (which has always been my favorite Austen) so im halfway there. 2y

I am a tad bit behind, Today, I was able to open my #JaneAustenSwap from @Mitch They we‘re just what I needed this crazy backwards week. I love Jane Austen‘s world. I live in the South and I grew up with those sweet Southern manners. The items that @Mitch choose for me were perfect. I wish I could say I had a favorite they all are. I apologize again for being late. I can not wait to see what I will do with my stamps. Thank you!!!

Mitch So glad! Hope it brought a little cheer to your week ❤️ 2y
mabell So many pretty gifts! 😍 I love the print! ❤️ 2y
