Happy Birthday, Jane Austen

via

...that a Jane Austen fangirl in possession of knowledge of Jane Austen's birthday must be in want of sharing the news!

Happy birthday, Jane!!! 

Yet as much as I love Jane, I discovered today is the day almost too late. But! I know now and so I just wanted to spread the Austen love once again. :) She would be 241 today. Obviously a young squirt, right?? I am clearly a fan of hers, as any of my usual readers know full well, and I love her books (those that I've actually read), her movies/miniseries, and every other kind of paraphernalia based on her books out there (of which there is a great deal!).















Yay for Jane Austen happiness! Also, I trust y'all are doing well and having a great Friday. Mine is frigid currently, so staying inside with my starbucks chai tea is a must! :)

  2. I must not be that big of a fan because I didn't know it was her birthday. How exciting.

    1. Jenny: If it makes you feel any better, I didn't know it was her birthday until I saw something online that morning. So I must not be that big of a fan either.

  3. I wish her birthday wasn't so close to Christmas, because I want to throw a Jane Austen blog party at some point, and her birthday would be the obvious date, but... everybody busy in December. Hmm.

    Anyway, happy birthday a day late, dear Ms. Austen!

    1. Hamlette: I get that! Because while it would be awesome (!!!), December is definitely pretty busy for people. I'd still be game if you ever want to try it though! :)

    2. What about February, for Valentine's Day? Since she writes about love and romance a lot?

    3. Hamlette: Ooo! I like that idea! I would definitely plan to work that into my schedule. And be happy to help you in any way if you need it...? (Not really sure what you're thinking and whether I could actually do anything to help, but the offer is out there anyway! :)

    4. Well, at first I was thinking of a Jane Austen Week like how Heidi did her Emma Week a couple years ago, but then I was thinking that something a bit different might be good? Like a Jane Austen blogathon? People could review an Austen-related book or movie (or more than one) on their own blogs, and so on? What do you think would be better? Or do you have a different idea? Help me brainstorm, for starters!

    5. Hamlette: So I am VERY late in replying, I do apologize. I also glimpsed your post about this. I shall head over soon and comment! I hope you incorporated these ideas because I like them!

  4. I just stumbled upon your blog :)
    Thanks for this. It's wonderful that a girl who's turning 241 can still have as many fans as she does, including all of us. It shows that a great story is truly timeless.

    1. Paula: Yes! You said it exactly. Her enduring popularity is credit to her skill at writing great stories. I just love how she has so many different things in her books, a little romance, a little intrigue, a little humor, a little sarcasm, just a big mix of awesome! :)

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I so appreciate it!
