Jane Austen Does Vegas, Baby!

Hey, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! Right? Even for an action figure of 18th-century British author. So protocol and propriety dictate that we won’t reveal what Jane did at the Paris Hotel, but suffice-it-to-say that Lydia Bennet would have approved, and a good time was had by all. La!

Check out the PBS The Complete Jane Austen Flickr group, Jane Austen in Your Narrative World, and see great photos submitted by Jane Austen fans who have taken her along on their travels throughout the world from Las Vegas, to the Grand Canyon to Germany. This photo was submitted by reeya. Thanks!

The Flickr group is open for your own submissions. So here is the challenge. Let’s see how far Miss Austen’s travels can take her. Tuck her in your capacious handbag and let your imagination bloom. We will be posting photo updates here periodically to keep you informed.

Don’t have your very own Jane Austen action figure yet? She is definitely a ‘must have’ item for every hip Janeite. She even comes with her own writing desk, quill pen and copy of Pride and Prejudice. Made by Accoutrements of Seattle, Washington - that Mecca of reading literati - you can purchase your own copy at or at Archie McPhee online.
