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.
