Jane Austen's Advice

Dear Readers, Happy New Year, everyone! 2011 promises to be a good on in Jane Austen Land.Thank you for visiting this blog and inspiring us to provide daily information about Jane.

A good friend, Lady Anne, sent me words of advice from Jane Austen's Little Advice Book. Our dear Jane is always good for a chuckle!

On Taking Autobiographies with a Grain of Salt:
"Those who tell their own story...must be listened to with caution." - Sanditon
On prediction the popularity of plastic surgery:
"But people themselves alter so much, that there is something new to observed in them forever" - (P&P)

Happy New Year Vic. The book cover looks good and the content is of course a gem. Thanks for the heads up.

Hello, fellow Austenite!
I wrote an article about re-enacting British Regency and I thought it might interest you. Don't mean to spam but maybe your readership would be interested in giving re-enactment a try considering it would enable them to step into Jane Austen's footsteps.
