Kelly over at The Barefoot Mama is hosting........................
....................... this week!!
If you are a fan of Jane Austin's novels, want to learn more, or have never read one but would consider doing so (on my recommendation, do it, do it!), visit Kelly's blog to join in the festivities!! And pick up one of Jane's treasured novels if you can! I'll be doing a few more Jane-related posts this week too.
I am an Austin fan, though don't know if I could be classed as a "Janeite", quite yet. I absolutely adore Pride and Prejudice, and there are days when I seriously think I was born in the wrong era. :) I know my Mother's always thought so. I watched Mansfield Park recently and really enjoyed it, but have never read it. This week, amid dishwashing, tablescrubbing, laundryfolding, storyreading, bottomwiping and groceryshopping..... I am taking a trip to Mansfield Park on paper. My Mum gave me a pile of old books a few months back, and one of them was Mansfield Park. It's over 100 years old and falling apart, and I have a much newer version on my bookcase..... BUT, I want to be truly transported this week! I shall finger those old pages with care, and enjoy being lifted from my daily grind into the glorious realm of Regency England.
