My Jane Austen Binge

IMG_4864I really didn’t mean to do it, but as the week progressed it all fell into place. My Jane Austen Binge. It started with a book I found on Audible Miss Austen by Gill Hornby. The main character? Cassandra Austen. But of course, the narrative sheds light on the life of Jane too. Life, Love, Love Lost.  All so exciting.

That led me to the stack of DVDs that I had set aside last year–Austen’s six novels in film from various years. What a treasure to pursue during my Stay at Home days! In no particular order I watched “Sense and Sensibility,” “Persuasion,” “Mansfield Park,” Pride and Prejudice,” “Emma,” and “Northanger Abbey.” Watching old movies is a positive of this slower, simpler time.

And, it so happened that the next book in my TBR stack was The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James.  I’m so glad that it follows along with Miss Austen with some of the same stories.

I want to stay in this Austen world for a little longer. I could read all of Jane Austen’s novels again….Perhaps!

Do you enjoy Jane Austen? Or which author would you read over and over?

    I would love to be part of the Austen world with you. How do you get into her books? Where do you start? It seems like such a mountain because she is so adored and there is so much written about her. I watched a Netflix movie called the Jane Austen Book Club. It was a modern-day group reading her work, very entertaining!
