Happy Birthday, Jane

Today is Jane Austen's Birthday. Happy Birthday, Ms. Austen!

While she didn't achieve best seller status in her own lifetime, I still bow down before her awesomeness. I could only ever dream of being as good as she.

My favorite of her novels is Pride and Prejudice. What can I say, my heart belongs to Mr. Darcy. How about you? Do you have a favorite Austen novel or character?


  1. My favorite novel is Pride & Prejudice (not just my favorite Austen favorite novel, period). But as for my favorite character, it's actually a tie between Eleanor Dashwood and Fanny Price.

  2. My favorite Jane Austen novel is actually Sense and Sensibility. I like what Austen does with Eleanor and Marianne, I don't have sisters and I always liked the fact they got along. My favorite character is Emma. Her comeuppance at the end is one of my favorite reads.

  3. Pride & Prejudice for sure. I love Mr. Darcy.

  4. Karen -- Yay for Pride and Prejudice. It might be one of my all time favorites as well.

    Piedmont -- Yes, getting along with a sister is very nice.

    Susan -- I like your taste. ;-)
