Carolyn, some of your links are not working. I really wanted to see the fanfic site, but nothing comes up for me.

Sorry about that. I’ve fixed the links. Blogger, for some reason, added the same bit of gobbledegook at the end of several links.

Thanks for the links, Carolyn. And Happy Birthday, Jane!

Carolyn, isn’t it amazing that 200 years later Jane Austen is still so popular there is all this information on the web!

Thanks Carolyn. I really wanted to see that site and have already found some Persuasion fanfic that I like. I am so obsessed with Persuasion. I wish there was more fanfic that was printed in book format available to purchase or download to my Kindle. Alas it seems to be P & P that’s gets all the glory.

I am amazed at the amount of information out there about Jane.

The birthday explains why the book on my book-a-day calendar is “The Annotated Pride and Prejudice” by David M. Shapard. It is her birthday, but her books are her gifts to the rest of us.

Happy Birthday, Jane! and Thanks to everyone who stopped by.

It is a testament to the enduring power and passion of her writing that while some writers’ fame dims, hers remains and grows with each new generation lucky enough to discover her.

Happy Birthday, Jane. I owe you for the hours of pleasure your words have given me, for the friends I’ve made through my love of your work and for the career I aspire to.

My daughter and I are about to start reading P&P together! I shall treasure every moment.

Will have to show this post to my boss. She is a huge Austen fan. We had a Jane Austen Birthday Tea at our library today. It was a small group, but not bad for something never done before. The staff did dramatic readings from Pride and Prejudice and participants were given a test on their knowledge of Jane and her books. We all had a good time..

Let me recommend a website called cafepress. If you type Jane Austen into the search engine, you come up with some truly fabulous slogans. My personal favourite is ‘No Top Hat? Not interested’.

Thanks for the link. I have a couple more Austen do-overs featured tomorrow.
