My first brush with Jane Austen came when I borrowed Persuasion from the library. I was really young when I did and I didn’t understand a word of it. Later on I borrowed Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park from the library but had the same problem.
One day when I was in a gift shop, I came across a book called The Jane Austen Handbook: Proper Life Skills For Regency England. I purchased it and read the whole thing in one sitting.
The first novel I read was Pride and Prejudice. Afterwards, I watched P and P 2005 with my mom. I really enjoyed it and before long I read every single Austen novel and watched numerous adaptions.
I started this blog so I could share my love of all things Jane Austen with other people. I hope you enjoy it.
