Great site!!!!

From JaneAustenSummer2019@JASPhotline‏:
Jane Austen fans! If you were, say, compiling a Spotify playlist of songs that remind you of Pride and Prejudice (the book or any adaptation or any character), what would you put on it?

“King of Anything” and “I Choose You” – both by Sara Bareilles. They chart Lizzy’s change of heart toward Darcy from the beginning of the novel to the end really well. ☺️
Wow that “King of Anything”. I love the video..there seemed to be a few Keira Knightley facial expressions in the beginning and maybe some Lizzy Bennet Diary’s @TheAshleyClem as well in the middle.”
Some great lyrics that may better apply to Rev Collins and Lady Catherine the bug than Mr Darcy…..
****”But you expect me to jump up on board with you
And ride off into your delusional sunset”
(AiB: lol…I know something or two about delusional sunsets)****
****”You got the talking down, just not the listening”****
****”You’ve got opinions, man
We’re all entitled to ’em, but I never asked”****
****”Let me hold your crown, babe”****

And if you can bare a super sweet song “Jane Austen” by Holly Christina. She mentions Mr Darcy, Longbourn, and Pemberley in the song. Lol and Mr Knightley too.
Replying to @JASPhotline
Charles Bingley to Jane Bennet “Jane” by Jefferson Starship. Jane Bennet to Charles Bingley “Count on Me” Jefferson Starship (RIP Marty Balin) and “Love is Alive” by Gary Wright

Courtship, love and marriage in Jane Austen’s novels
Professor John Mullan explores the romantic, social and economic considerations that precede marriage in the novels of Jane Austen.

Here are three comments on the original post. One is by me. 🙂
“You shouldn’t write in that: it’s a library book.”
“Dear Diary, The man I’m going to marry is watching me write this!! People will argue about this for 200yrs plus. I don’t give one Mary Crawford harp string!!!! Related? Blah blah blah!”
“Can you help me here? 4 vertical… a large, open, four-wheeled carriage… 8 letters, starting with B.”…/…/quiet-observation-in-persuasion/

“Quiet Observation” in Persuasion
“We have much to learn from the patient practice of quiet observation in Jane Austen’s Persuasion,” writes Natasha Duquette. I’m sharing her guest post on the novel today in honour of the first day…
