New Jane Austen Website: JaneAusten.org

JaneAusten.org

We stumbled upon this new Jane Austen themed website today called JaneAusten.org, and thought it quite lovely! It includes biographical info, a life timeline, quotes, movie info, online texts of the novels and other great resources. It appears that quite a bit of thought and respect have been put into the design and it is very professional. Bravo! We are a bit puzzled though, because there is no mention of why it was created, or who created it.  We won’t pull a Lady Catherine and look a gift Jane Austen site in the mouth, but we would like to thank someone and know what their motivation is. Hey, the Jane Austen community are inquisitive and protective types, right?  

Have a great weekend Janeites. Cheers, Laurel Ann
