|Coming from Abbeville: Austen’s notebooks|
Well, my blog “vacation” ended up being pretty busy. Participating in Austen in August hosted by Lost Generation Reader kept me quite occupied with reading and writing about Austen-related books, and reading other people’s posts. You can see the summary of my own posts here, and here are some others that I especially enjoyed:
- Some lovely images of Bath from The Four Seasons of Brona
- An interesting point about Mr Darcy’s proposal from Brian’s Babbling Books
- A great dissection of A Memoir of Jane Austen at majoring in literature
- A hilarious call for a stop to Austen sequels from Booking It
I was honored to be able to contribute a guest post on Illustrating Jane Austen. The other guest posts were excellent:
- Jane Austen and the Art of Walking from Roof Beam Reader
- Speculation and Conjecture in Jane Austen’s Emma from Ellen Exploring
- There is Nothing Like Austen For Real Comfort from Esther’s Narrative
- Mansfield Park and the Art of Self-Deception from majoring in literature
I even won one of the giveaways, and I never win! So I’m sure I’ll be back next year for this very enjoyable event. I’ll just have to plan my vacation for another time.
This Friday, I’ll be back to my regular schedule of posting once a week (plus additional random times), with an exciting announcement! I hope you’ll join me to find out what’s in store this fall.
