  1. That sounds like a really good idea! I do not have a blog, but I will still be looking at the answers given.

  2. How exiting Miss Elizabeth! I'll be following along with great interest! I love all of these blog buttons and it was difficult to decide between the Northanger Abbey button (my favorite novel) and the Mansfield Park button (because I'm reading the book right now) but I finally decided on the NA button! I'm really looking forward to this event!

  5. Charity,
    Thanks for the post. Yes, I would put up an announcement when I post the questions. I think I'll post them in a day or two so everyone has a chance to start writing them before Jane Austen Week starts.

  8. Sarah,
    Are you posting it under the HTML setting in the post page? Or in the Design Gadget for Java/HTML? If that doesn't work, let me know so I can take a closer look at the code.

  12. I'm working on the filling out the questions. :)

    It occurred to me last night that it might also to be fun to have a question along the lines of "Who do you think the three worst bad guys in Jane Austen's novels are?" Maybe the one about who bugs me most covers that, but. Just a thought. :)

  13. Charity,
    I meant number 7 to cover that, but it was a great suggestion!
