Happy Birthday Jane Austen!

235 years ago today, Jane Austen was born at the Steventon rectory in Hampshire, England. She would come to write six novels that are still well loved two hundred years later.

My favorite Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice; what is yours?

Update: I added a new poll in honor of Jane Austen's Birthday. There are two polls running now: this new one, and the older one. You can still vote in the older one for a couple of more days.


  1. Happy Birthday, Jane! :) I love "Pride and Prejudice", "Emma", and "Northanger Abbey" best. :)

  2. Happy Birthday dearest Jane!

    My favorite novel is Northanger Abbey followed very closely by Persuasion!

  3. My favorite is either "Northanger Abbey" or "Mansfield Park"... it's a toss-up between them too! And "Persuasion" follows close behind for me as well. :-)

  4. Like I said before, my favorite is Pride and Prejudice, but I also really liked Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey. Between Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility I have found a couple of similarities between the two (for example, the Bennet's situation if none of the girls got married and Mr. Bennet dies would be similar to the Dashwood's situation after Mr. Dashwood died).
