  • Austen Blog has revved up its blog engine and is going full blast again, offering posts filled with wonderful Jane tidbits and news.
  • Don't forget that my Icon contest will end at midnight, Sunday, November 11, USA EST! See the particulars in the post below. The run for the #1 spot is hot and heavy! I expect a flurry of activity before deadline.
  • Thanks to Austen-tatious, I discovered this blog's readability level. It is...taaa daaaa!

    cash advance

    Now, here's the rub. Jane Austen's World often contains concepts that are more difficult to grasp than those in this blog, describing customs, manners, language and mores of bygone days. Its readability level? High School. Ahem.

    On second thought, perhaps such a rating for a more 'scholarly' blog is not so bad after all. I imagine high school and college students are more apt to read Jane Austen's World for research if they can understand the concepts, so the language should be clear and accessible. Still. High School?
