#pemberlittens 🤣 I put Emma, P & P and Persuasion soundtracks on one playlist … 🎶🎼🎵
This is what makes Jane Austen great!
What are some first lines in books you‘ve read that have been brilliant?
I‘m trying to come up with catchy quotes to pique student interest in reading but I am up against cell phones and social media here, so Jane Austen ain‘t cutting it.
Post your faves below!
So this is my IRL Bookclub! We‘ve been together for 15 years - which has included 3 marriages, 9 children, countless job changes, joys and heart aches! We talk books and life and everything in between. This weekend was the first time we‘d met in person for 2 years and it nourished my soul. #bookpeoplerock
Time for #whiskeyandcontemplation of my rankings.
6️⃣ Sense and Sensibility
5️⃣ Mansfield Park
2️⃣ Northanger Abbey
1️⃣ Pride and Prejudice
I'll put my reasons in the comments.
So much fun to reread all of Austen‘s novels and to end on my favorite. Many thanks to @sprainedbrain for organizing and a special shout out to @DebinHawaii for the #chapteraday haikus and memes. Love the #Pemberlittens!!!
I'm ready #Pemberlittens! Whose got a cool hashtag for Persuasion?#PemberlittensandPersuasion ?
I've slowly been collecting Clothbound Classics as we've been reading. I picked up Persuasion a few days ago at Barnes and Noble. They also Love & Friendship and other Youthful Writings so I bought it to finish my collection. #collectionnotobsession 📚
One of my best purchases this month! I saw these gorgeous covered classics by Charlotte Brontë and Jane Austen and couldn‘t resist! Plus, the 1995 version of Persuasion with Amanda Root and Ciarán Hinds had me in the mood ☺️
This popped up in my Facebook On this Day. Every year I celebrate my Birthday for as many Days as I'm years old. Not about big parties and spending money although I do spend money. Hey it's my Birthday. But more importantly it's taking time every day to enjoy life's little moments. #Pemberlittens are definitely a part of that. I didn't realize we've been at this over a year. It's been a delight. 📚
Thanks @andrea313 for teaching me what 'mommyjacking' was. Absolutely what happened in this chapter. I listened while getting ready for my IRL Books and Brews Club. It's so wonderful to be back in person. 😆💉💉📚🍻
Just finished my new Jane Austen themed puzzle with my Mum. It was lovely and a bit easier than the World of Shakespeare one in the same range!
Decided to just go ahead and order this as a splurge and I adore her! She‘ll probably come out of her box soon because I don‘t care for the boxes. She needs to be free!
My sister saw it the other day and asked “who is she?” 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣 I know my sister doesn‘t read much but my goodness I didn‘t know it was that bad!
I am in love with this new podcast! They‘re reading Austen with a view to looking at it with modern eyes and historical context; for example, this last one looked at S+S through the lens of class and the one before that race in the Regency Era. It‘s fascinating! #PemberLittens
As part of my 2021 intention to ‘stay engaged‘ I‘m checking out the hundreds of free online lectures from the Gresham College. Jane seems the best place to start! 🥳
Cambridge Botanic Gardens have Jane and her love of landscape as pet of the 2021 online course curriculum 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 #pemberlittens
Happy Birthday, Jane! 🥳🎉🎂📚
CELEBRATE JANE AUSTEN‘S BIRTHDAY WITH A 360-DEGREE, INTERACTIVE TOUR OF HER HOUSE
It‘s Jane Austen‘s birthday!
I hope everyone finds a way to enjoy the magic that Austen gave to us today. 🥰
Personally, I‘ve already busted out Persuasion to read my favorite letter (and swoon a little). I‘ll be watching my daily episode for #25DaysOfPrideAndPrejudice & continuing #AJaneAustenEducationBuddyRead.

@Kdgordon88 THESE BOOKS! Pride and Prejudice is just stunning. What a special gift for my library. I just love it.
And someone stalked me well. I put the Elvis and the Grateful Dead up on my shelf. Nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile. ⚡️❤️⚡️
Just a perfect swap. Thank you again.

@Kdgordon88 I have so much to say about these gorgeous gifts!!! The bag and pouch are fabulous! The stationary and pens will be used quickly...love them. The candles smells wonderful-in the kitchen! Oh, how I love masks and these are perfect for the holiday. Coffee and Chocolate -not sharing with the family. 🤣

Has anyone read this article? Thoughts? #pemberlittens
I've seen a lot of similar memes, but had to make sure my fellow #PemberLittens got wind of this one. 😂

@LeahBergen IT FINALLY ARRIVED!!! EEEK
It‘s heavy and full of goodies!!! (I made sure not to look at the Customs slip)
The good thing is I don‘t have to wait too long before opening day! 😁
Looking for this old photo for #chawtonhousephotochallenge I'm doing on Instagram. Thought I would use for today's #Pemberlittens post. W/ #NorthangerAbbeyNovember is coming to and end. Time to make a Dec Stack. Will concentrate on P & Prejudice retellings I didn't get to in Oct since N Abbey retellings are scheduled for Jan. @sprainedbrain
Previous post 2yrs ago: Of course I brought home Lizzy, Darcy, & Jane. 😊
I received my #averyaustenholiday package! Yeah! I‘m a bit late because I was waiting on something, but I‘m mailing my package out tomorrow for sure. Sorry! I‘m going to check with post office on shipping to try to ensure it will arrive in time. I will post that as well. @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain
