When I had the chance to get my gloved paws on THE LIST LOVER’S GIUDE TO JANE AUSTEN I was too thrilled. Can you imagine the thrill of the intersection of two of my favorites: Austen and lists.
Joan Strasbaugh, herself a Janeite, in conjunction with Sourcebooks Casablanca, who never sway from loving Jane, and have joined forces to produce and publish this book. It is steeped in existing credentialed research and blessed by the President of the Jane Austen Society of Australia so you know you are in good hands.
To give you a taste but not spoil the contents some of my favorite lists are: Characters in the Novels, In Order of Appearance, Clothes she Wore, Spoiler Alert! Last Lines and my personal favorite that I plan to put to good use Cultural Outings in London. I could go on and on and have revisited these pages, shared these lists and already plan to give this to the Janeites in my life. If you love Jane or know someone who does stand up and embrace the lists!
As we are headed to England this Fall to celebrate Jane I will definitely utilize the delightful bits and bites included in this book in planning spots that we have to hit. So you can see from amusement to travel this book has something for everyone that loves Jane Austen and that is worldwide.
