AUSTEN IN AUGUST 2017 Main Page!

Well hey there, you sexy Janeite, you! And welcome to our 8th annual Jane Austen celebration! If you're unfamiliar with Austen in August (which means you're probably new around here, so: welcome!), 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 every post, which you can click to be brought back to this main page, and from thense, onto 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, should you feel so inspired!

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,' so make sure to show them lost of love!

Also, while we're at it, I HIGHLY recommend that you join our read-along of Lady Susan (it's suuuper quick, I promise!), and the accompanying discussions, movie watching parties and/or twitter chats!

Last piece of business, I will be using page breaks this year, so if you see a post that interests you, click through! I've gone back and forth over the years, but the faster page load times and the minimization of clutter won out this year, so page breaks it is! But please, weigh in: if you'd much rather have each post in its entirety on the main page, let me know!

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

  1. Yay! Can't wait to read all the fab posts. :)

  2. Ooh, just discovered this! Looking forward to it.

  3. OK, in and around all the other craziness of my life right now, I'm gonna TRY to get some Austen time in. I'm also hoping to visit Bath while on the honeymoon in October, or perhaps another Austen site, but not sure if it'll work out. If I do, I'll take tons of pics and share them.

  4. Ouch! I am already late to the party... just found this. Dang!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
