A Jane Austen Education






I recently read and wrote a book review on  
A Jane Austen Education, by William for BlogHer Book Club.  



Have you ever met a guy who has read ALL of Jane Austen's works? 
This guy has...and he learned a lot of life lessons from her writing.



Have you read all of Jane Austen's books?
I haven't, but I plan on doing so this summer...she's the Godmother of Chick Lit, you know.

Hello there
My first time here - found you at the SITS site.
Exercise and Jane Austen - I have a love - hate relationship with them both. They are both there to be enjoyed but sometimes they end up in the 'too hard basket'lol
Take care
Cathy

Visiting from Sits, congrats! I have read only two of her books, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility, love them. I tried to make my husband read Pride and Prejudice, but his stare said it all.

I would not mind revisiting some Jane Austen. I have not read her since school.

Happy SITS Day today. I am wandering around your blog.

I found your blog on SITS as well. I recently downloaded some free "Jane Austen" books on kindle through Amazon. You can still download them for free

Hi there, congratulations on your SITS day! hope your day is filled with tons of comment love, 'cause let's face it, as bloggers we love comments. ;)

I've read only three of her six novels - loved them though. I have managed to get my husband to watch the movie versions - I consider that a huge feat. But every lover of great literature knows that movies can never compare to the written word.

Peace,

My dad gave me this book for my birthday, and I started reading it, but then realized that I didn't really want to read the chapters on the books I hadn't read yet. (Did you get all that? That was a confusing sentence, I think!) So then I bought a book of all her novels, and now I'm reading Northanger Abbey. (It's hilarious, by the way.) Anyway, I'm very much enjoying this book, and it made me laugh to be able to pull out the giant "companion" book of Jane Austen's novels, when I was visiting my dad.
