Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

I signed up.

I was excited to see that not only is there a film about Jane Austen herself out there is also a film of Northanger Abbey and Persuasion in production. I love Persuasion so much. So much Austen goodness - swoon.

Also did anyone see the blinged Mr Darcy bookmark from the Reading is Sexy swap?
