So happy to hear The End. Been listening to off & on since my Austen in August reread of Northanger Abbey. Thought I should have a frame of reference to what Jane Austen was poking fun at. I could only take so much of the Histrionics & would bail for awhile. Apparently no Editors in 1794 when this was published. It rambles on and on. Finally I can get this 31 h 15 m 42 s mess off my phone. 🙄

Thank you all for indulging me in my love of Jane Austen.
While officially #austeninaugust2019 is over; I'm not quite ready to let go. Finishing tagged book this Holiday Weekend. It's quite delightful. "Her genius began with the recognition that such lives as hers were very eventful indeed—that every life is eventful, if only you know how to look at it." ?

After Finishing Northanger Abbey today, began looking for any news on The Austen Project. Apparently ithas faded away due to poor response or lack of Authors willing to do. No sign of Mansfield Park or Persuasion. Of the 4 Pride and Prejudice and Emma were Picks. Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey were Pans. So make whole series a So-So. 😏

🤦‍♀️Modernizations are hard to do. This one has few good points but for the most part it's codswallop. Litsy doesn't give me enough space to list the reasons. If you want to read whole review go to my Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/22237394-annie

I'm a Bad Janeite. I've never read Jane Austen's last unfinished novel Sanditon. Now that it's coming to PBS I was looking for it in Print. Found it Half Price Books in Austin. 🏖

On my recent trip down Texas way, I made sure to stop in at Half Price Books. You never know what you might find.

Northanger Abbey | Jane Austen

Hanging out on the San Antonio Riverwalk waiting for my Henry to finish his business meeting.
While Pride and Prejudice was my first Austen love, I love Northanger Abbey just as much. I love the satire and the cheekiness but best of all it has Henry Tilney. Charming, Witty, AND a Novel Reader! 😍

MamaGina This brings back memories. I‘ve lived in SA twice in my lifetime, my son and DIL still live there. Many times I‘ve enjoyed a book just like this! 🤠 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @MamaGina I had a wonderful time. My 1st visit was for our Honeymoon, 2nd for 20th Anniversary, and this time I was just tagging along with Hubby's business trip. Many margaritas were drank. 3mo
Texreader Welcome to my lovely city! Sorry it‘s so humid today! 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Texreader I was actually there last week. (Been saving my pic for when I finished Northanger.) It was extremely hot once you left Riverwalk, but that just made margaritas more refreshing. I always find your city lovely. 3mo

I can just imagine Mr. and Mrs. Darcy strolling through the Italian Garden at Pemberley, I mean Lyme Park.
