This just in ~ I just received my first Jane Austen book. Not 1, not 2, but 3 Jane Austen books. They are Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, and Pride and Prejudice. I have to thank my friend, Tanya, for turning me onto Jane Austen through her beautiful cross stitch designs known as Designs Inspired By the Works of Jane Austen. You can see and purchase these designs and many, many more through Tanya's website. Thank you, Tanya!
I am so, so, so excited about getting these books. Once again, I owe it to my mother for her book club membership (I got more than I had hoped for and I'm so happy for that). I can't wait to get started on these books. The covers are simply gorgeous and there are primitive illustrations which surprised me. I have always heard of Ms. Austen and have known that her books were made into movies, but I had not read one nor have I seen any of the movies. Thankfully, I was recently given the movie "Sense and Sensibility" which I still need to watch, but I think I'll hold off and read the book first, not because I want to, but because I CAN!
