Pride and Sensibility…
My favorite part is this page, The Jane Austen top ten song list, listing songs like "Material Girl" for Lucy Steele.
For the seriously demented fans, it also includes answering machine messages from an assortment of characters:
Mary Musgrove: "I am very ill today and quite unable to answer the phone. If I had a visitor, I suppose that person could have spoken with you, but it does not suit the Miss Musgroves to visit the ill, and I dare not rise from my bed for fear that I may be seized in some dreadful way!"

This is another “co-blogged” post, this time with local Irvine writer Suzanne Broughton, who blogs at Emphasis Mine, and at the Orange County Register's Mommy's Mind is Not a Toy and Alive in Wonderland.

It seems the co-blog is a path alot of great blogs are traveling. People that manage great blogs like you, obviously love what they're doing and IMHO there is nothing wrong with finding likeminded people to contribute.
Any enduring print publication requires numerous strong minds and perspectives.
I didn't know much of anything about Jane Austen before I read this.
