  1. I must confess. I have not read Austen. I’ve seen some of the t.v adaptations, and can’t wait to read them all this summer. That’s the plan anyway.


  2. Well, I host an Austen in August event – is it to torture myself, or to pay homage to one of the best? Come find out. 😉


  3. Wow, I actually just wrote about this very topic a few days ago! For me, neither: I don’t love her, and I don’t despise her either, certainly wouldn’t desecrate her grave!! Here are my thoughts on why: For my favorite Austen novel, it’s a toss up between Persuasion and Emma. My least favorite Austen novel is Sense & Sensibility (I didn’t really like any of the characters, and I just found it boring).


    1. There were some great replies to my thoughts about Austen, so feel free to check out my link, if only just to read the well thought out responses!


    2. Persuasion and Emma are the very two that I’m saving for my Austen in August event later this year! After that, I’ll have read all of Austen. Very exciting!
