As to the pretence of trying her native air, I look upon that as a mere excuse.--In the summer it might have passed; but what can any body's native air do for them in the months of January, February, and March? — Jane Austen, Emma

Another celebration in 2013



Thanks to Austenonly {and Twitter}, I've just learned that the first edition of Pride and Prejudice was published in January 1813, and there's going to be a party.   I did say I was longing to read all of the novels again ...

Reading Persuasion again definitely left me in an Austen mood!

I am so tempted, and aren;t events like this a lovely reminder that the world is full of bibliophiles?!

It's high time for me to read Pride and Prejudice again, too!
