Hello, hello, my darling Janeites! And welcome to our 7th annual Jane Austen lovefest! If you're unfamiliar with Austen in August (which, really? Where have you been for the better part of a decade? But for the sake of argument...), briefly: AIA is 2 solid weeks of non-stop Janery -- reviews, discussions, guest posts, giveaways. readalongs, etc., etc. -- if it's Jane, it's fair game. All are welcome in Austen in August, from the most diehard of Janeites, with their " If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more" tattoos and their invitations to Almack's*, to the most fresh-faced, wide-eyed initiates, who find no significance (as yet) in the term "fine eyes"... (noobs)
*If groups like this really exist, please tell me how to become one of your order...

Below is the schedule of events to help guide you through the next two WoJ (Weeks of Jane). The Austen in August button, seen above, will be at the bottom of each and every post, which you can click to be brought back to this main page, so you can navigate to your next bit of Janedom. Feel free to snag the button below and display it on your sidebars, tumblrs, or your own AIA blog posts.

And speaking of your own posts - a lot of the amazing Jane goodness you're going to see during Austen in August was contributed by other bloggers and authors who are amazing and astounding and awesome, and I'm sure other words beginning with 'A'. In the midst of all this sweet, sweet Janery, you may find yourself regretting that you didn't sign up for a guest post, but it's cool, I've gotcha covered! There is a Participation Linky where you can share any Austen-related posts you decide to share from your own blogs -- wade in and get your feet wet, or dive in head first and share your love of Austen! Or join our read-along of Sense & Sensibility, and the accompanying discussions, movie watching parties and/or twitter chats!

Lastly, we're spilling over into September this year because everyone in my life decided to get married or do a Very Big Life Thing in the month of August, so make sure you stick around for those first few days of Austen in Not-August!

Now: let's get down to business. . .  (to defeat the Huns... wait, wrong fandom.)

(It's pretty full, I hope you brought a spare pair of dancing shoes...)
