#30junebooks @howjessreads My attempt at #spinepoetry - it makes sense in my head? What would Jane do? Speak - bright young things! Perchance to dream...before the awakening. Ok...maybe not 😄

MayJasper As a Jane myself I am saying it does make sense ✔️ 4mo
Cheshirecat913 👏 awesome! 4mo
readordierachel I like it! 4mo

A very fitting quote for Piratess @CrowCAH !

CrowCAH Very true, I do spend a lot of time on an imaginary ship, writing my novel and short stories! 5mo

A little surprise from my awesome neighbor today! ☺️

I don't know what Jane would do, but I'm sure this book will answer that #WhatWouldJaneDo? #AustenInAugust

Crinoline_Laphroaig It's very pretty! Perhaps it will be excessively diverting. 14mo

Found an Amazon package in the mailbox and thought to myself, “I didn‘t order anything, did I?” Nope, but my dear #Litsy pen pal @Jerdencon did! Thank you for the lovely birthday gift Denise! I‘m so very touched - you‘re the best!!!

BookaholicNatty Aren‘t #Litsyfriends just the best ever??? 1y
Jerdencon Happy early birthday! There will be another package coming tomorrow because for some reason Amazon couldn't send it together. Hope you enjoy it! 1y
rustoryhuf @Jerdencon it arrived today! Thanks you sweet friend. 1y

I love seeing everyone‘s Austen things for the #JaneAustenSwap ! To my match, please know I would be beyond happy with anything...honestly! If you want an idea of the books I own, my LibraryThing account lists everything Austen I own and/or read (link to my LT profile in my Litsy profile, and I use the tag Jane Austen for every Austen book). I do own the tagged book, for instance. Continued in comments...

Librarybelle ...I also own multiple copies of some books and movies, so I really have no issue with duplicates (I own at least 3 copies of Colin Firth‘s P&P!). Again, I‘m happy with anything and really just appreciate sharing my love of Austen with someone else! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
mabell I love that sentiment! It is so true. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
rustoryhuf I‘m so excited for this swap!!! 2y

LeahBergen @Izai.Amorim Me, too. 👍🏻 2y
LeahBergen @rustoryhuf I received it in a Secret Santa swap, too! It‘s from the lovely @drokka 😀 2y
LeahBergen @JoeStalksBeck I know! I‘m snorting at all the replies and waiting for a codpiece post. 😂 2y
drokka I should have read this before sending. It's quite clever. 😂 2y
LeahBergen @drokka You should have! It‘s such a great little book. 😘😘 2y

Talk about #JoiningaFanClub...my enjoyment of everything Jane Austen led me to JASNA, the Jane Austen Society of North America. It's an organization of Janeites.

The tagged book is a fun look at Austen quotes that fit any possible occasion. #JuneTunz

Joanne1 Love it! 2y
Librarybelle Haha, @Joanne1 ! Gotta love Austen! 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess Do you like JASNA? I have often thought about joining it. (edited) 2y

Librarybelle I do, @Graciouswarriorprincess . I haven't been able to attend the annual conference, though it looks amazing. My regional chapter does a lot of activities - some chapters are more involved than others. I haven't been to those events either - life gets in the way! - but they seem fun too. Newsletters and JASNA's journal called Persuasion are sent out to members. I think it's worth it! 2y
Cinfhen That's pretty awesome 🤓I'm sure lots of Littens are going to be interested in this fan club 💗 2y
Librarybelle @Cinfhen There are also Jane Austen societies around the world, so everyone can join a society based in their country or part of the world! 2y
brennahawleycraig I joined as well a couple years ago! I'm lucky enough that next year's conference is in the city where I work! 2y
Librarybelle That is so cool, @brennahawleycraig !! 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess @Librarybelle Thank you. I did see a regional in Raleigh, NC. 2y
LeahBergen I've thought about joining for a couple of year now. 🤔 2y
Librarybelle @LeahBergen I had debated for a couple of years too, but I'm glad I joined. I know I would get a lot more out of it if I could attend the conference and regional programs. 2y

Found this at the bookshop earlier. Almost bought it but then saw that it's only a collection of neatly designed quotes. Hmmm, is that really worth my hard earned money? I can't decide. It IS cute but ... hmm. 🤔

JoeStalksBeck What would @scripturient do? 😉 3y
scripturient @GoodallBookHaul 🤣🤣🤣👍🏻😊 3y
CarolynOliver My aunt gave this to me a couple years ago--it's cute! 3y
LauraBrook I got this as a gift, which was a relief for me since I was in the same position you are now! My default is always to buy first, and ask rational questions later, though. 3y
pocketmermaid I got this for my aunt for Christmas one year and she loves it. I always get her a Jane Austen themed gift. I'll never run out! 😀 3y

Hello Littens! It has been far too long -- November was a hectic month, so I was not able to do much here. Please know that I wish I could have liked and commented on your wonderful posts from last month, because you all are awesome and always have beautiful pictures and/or something insightful and fun to say 👍😊 So excited to be back!!! 📚🌞

obviateit It's good to see you again! 3y
Lynnsoprano Oh, I love that book! Bought it for my DIL last summer, when we were at Chatsworth, aka Pemberley. 3y

bmsddk @obviateit Thank you! Good to see you too 😄 @Lynnsoprano It's a lovely little book, so many Austen gems 🌟 @LeahBergen Hi! 👋 Thanks for the welcome! 😀 3y
bmsddk @Lynnsoprano How was 'Pemberley' when you visited? 3y
moranadatter Welcome back! Glad you're here. 3y
Lynnsoprano @bmsddk It was beautiful. The house is gorgeous, and the statuary hall is at the end of the tour, so there are all the statues I remembered from the movie😀 I wish we would have had more time to explore the grounds, but we got to a number of recognizable spots. 3y
Tsubame Welcome back! 😃 I was wondering if you had gone down under, because you were silent for so long 😊 3y

Keep this on my desk for whenever I need a little Jane in my life... Along with a Jane Austen action figure, of course 😀
