Pride and Sensibility…

Austin_table The Republic of Pemberley is the largest Jane Austen site on the web. The Jane Austen Information Page has everything you ever wanted to know about the girl

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!"

How have we lived this long without a Captain Wentworth or Edward paper doll? Gallery of Paper Dolls has them, plus Heathcliff

I Want My Jane Austen at “Emphasis Mine”

Longbourn, a Jane Austen fan site featuring screencaps from Pride and Prejudice (both the 1995 and 2005 adaptations), Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion. The caps are large, unaltered, and high quality. They're available for download in zip files. (With links!)

To continue the age-old debate, Colin Firth or Matthew MacFayden, which is the real (better) Mr. Darcy? The Jane Austen Movie Club provides the answer

Photo above is the table where Jane Austen wrote all of her books. No Mac, no spell check or Dictionary.com, just this table and her imagination…

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. Thank you, Suzanne! (All previous co-bloggers archived here.) If other creative types are interested to share the forum here on any other topic, please contact me for details.

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.

There's also the annual Jane Austen Festival in Bath in September, with a promenade, a Regency ball, hats made to order, and walking tours:
