Great Jane Austen Inspired Blogs Keep Janeites Connected and a Grand Austenesque Book Giveaway!

Jane Austen is indeed everywhere on the Internet. Thanks to great blogging platforms like WordPress.com, Blogger and Typepad available today, there are numerous blogs honoring our favorite author to choose from. It seems like there is a continual stream of Jane Austen related posts in my Google Reader, far more than I can every read, but satisfying all the same.

Here is a list of some of my favorite Jane Austen blogs. My criteria was that the blog should be based on Jane Austen or her characters and have been active in the last two months. You can find a full list to links to Jane Austen blog by following this link.

  7. What a fabulous resource. I found a few blogs that are new to me and, of course, felt a flush of self satisfaction at seeing my blog included! Thanks Laurel Anne! My favorite blogs (aka, the ones I cannot live without) are, in no particular order:

    Austenesque Reviews
    AustenOnly
    Austenprose
    My Jane Austen Book Club
    Jane Austen’s World (Did I miss something, or was this blog not included? I know Jane Austen Today was listed.)

    Thanks for the opportunity! I have copies of most of the books on offer, so if I am so lucky as to win a duplicate is it OK if I either defer acceptance of it or offer it up again to a follower of my blog? I would just not enter, but the temptation of Lauren Willig’s book (I have really wanted to start reading her works – mostly thanks to your rousing endorsements!) was too great to resist.

  16. Laurel Ann,

    I had been busy all day and so I found out about your doing me the honor of including me on your list of favorite Austen blogs in an unusual way. I noticed in my blog stats that there were a bunch of hits that were directed to my blog from Austenprose!

    So I checked, and sure enough your very gracious reference was the reason, for which I offer you my sincere thanks!

    It was great meeting you at the AGM, and I congratulate you on running what must be one of the most widely read Austen blogs of all, which is a reflection of both your diligence in presenting news and ideas that many Janeites wish to read, and your creativity in presenting it all in a very pleasing way!

    Cheers, ARNIE

  19. Laurel Ann, today I was considering how to ask the question you have answered by your post today! You and Vic of Jane Austen Today are my 2 most frequent and genuine sources of anything Jane Austen I can’t find or get my hands on. I have been ordering things from museums in London and Chicago because of both of you. (The Thomas Lawrence Portraits arrived today, thank you very much!) I am so delighted to see one of your posts in my inbox. Truly, these blogs are my end of the day treat! Thank you for sharing your Jane-enthusiasm with the rest of us!
