200 Years Without Jane Austen

Jane Austen died 200 years ago today.

I'm trying to think up interesting things to say about that, but I'm pretty much failing.

I love Jane Austen's writing.  She makes me laugh AND she makes me think, and that's a rare combination.


Rest in peace, Jane Austen.  Your stories have brought me many, many hours of enjoyment.

  2. R.I.P and thank you Jane. She is one of my favourite authors. Jane captured her time perfectly, and gave us so many beloved and memorable literary characters. Maddy

    1. MC, yeah, it kind of snuck up on me, or I'd have thought out more to say ahead of time.

    1. Can't believe it has been 200 years ago since Jane Austen died. I love her works. And I adore the movies that are based upon her works.
