Austen in August, Jane Austen, JAFF, Jane Austen fan fiction, The Book Rat

Hello, and welcome to a brand new Austen in August — our 10th year!! AIA is a blog event in which a group of Janeites (this includes you!) comes together to discuss, binge on, and gush over all things Austen and Austen-adjacent. This month, you'll find 4 solid weeks worth of reviews, discussions, interviews, giveaways and more — hopefully enough to satisfy the Jane craving inside of you. (But is it ever really satisfied?)

This year, to celebrate 10 years of Austenmania here on TBR, we're TAKING OVER THE WORLD! Or at least a small corner of the internet. And by this I mean: not all of this year's AIA posts will be located here on The Book Rat! There was just too much Austen love to contain. So in the schedule below, many of the posts will link to a page here on Ye Olde Blogge, but some will take you out into the wider world, to other people's blogs and websites and youtube channels. (It's okay, though. No stranger danger, I promise!)
And if you find yourself just so inspired this month and you want to join in and pop up a post on your own blog, contact me with a link and I'll add it into the schedule!

You can find all of that below, with a bit of a sneak peek at what is coming in the first few days; from there, the schedule will be updated daily. Posts will be going up in every morning and most afternoons or evenings every weekday (and by 'day' I mean, what passes for day in the Eastern US timezone, because that is where I live and work and schedule things like this), and each post will include a link at the bottom that links back to this post, and looks like this:

And I think that's probably all you need to know! Welcome (or welcome back) to Austen in August; I hope you enjoy your stay!

In this AUSTEN IN AUGUST, you will find:
please note: posts are updated daily, and may be linked up earlier than they go live, in which case, the link will appear to be "broken"  -- check back often for current and updated posts and links!

                                    4. When I clicked on the Giveaway link above, it goes to a page does not exist. Oops!

                                      1. I prepare all the links the night before, so I'm not having to come back every few hours to do so, but the posts themselves go live throughout the day, in the order they're listed. So the giveaway will be live tonight!
