I first read Jane Austen in Junior High. My introduction to her had been the 1995 adaptation of Emma, and I fell so in love with that movie I simply had to read the book. I’ve been reading and rereading Jane Austen ever since. She’s my absolute favorite literary author, and I adore pretty much everything that has to do with her (except modern day adaptations of Sense and Sensibility–they just don’t work).
For this month’s Etsy Love, I put together a collection of some of my favorite Austen-related items. As a huge Janeite, I’m seriously considering getting a few of these items (I got an Etsy giftcard for my birthday!). They’re just so classy and pretty!
What was your introduction to Jane Austen? Do you have a favorite Jane Austen book or film adaptation?
