Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

Happy Bday Jane

Today, December 16, 1775, Jane Austen was born, the woman who would become one of the most beloved and acclaimed writers ever and the object of EBC obsession.

I have now written 66 posts about Jane Austen and 35 about Pride and Prejudice and as "Emma" comes down the pipes, the number will only grow. For providing me such endless, endless fodder for thought and fun, I raise a cup of coffee and a muffin* to Jane and to you, my fellow Janeites.

* With such rivals for the notice of the fair as Mr. Wickham and the officers, Mr. Collins seemed to sink into insignificance; to the young ladies he certainly was nothing; but he had still at intervals a kind listener in Mrs. Phillips, and was by her watchfulness, most abundantly supplied with coffee and muffin.
