WELCOME, dear guests!

You have arrived at a rather lovely soirée in honor of Talk like Jane Austen Day.

Talk Like Jane Austen Day is an annual event, marking the anniversary of the first printing of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Austen's first published novel.


I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice


Library scene with Jane and Mr. Lefroy from Becoming Jane in which Jane learns a thing or two...


Tom Lefroy: If you wish to practice the art of fiction, to be the equal of a masculine author, experience is vital.

Jane Austen: I see. And what qualifies you to offer this advice?

Tom Lefroy: I know more of the world.

Jane Austen: A great deal more, I gather.

Tom Lefroy: Enough to know that your horizons must be... widened.


Something new to add to your library which arrives in stores next month...
