POLL! Which is your favourite Netherfield?

Last year I asked at which Pemberley you’d rather be. 56% of you wanted to be mistress of Lyme Park (Netherfield in the ’95 adaptation), and 44% chose Chatsworth (from the 2005 adaptation).

If you were Jane Bennet, which Netherfield would you choose – Edgcote House from the BBC series (1995), or Basildon Park from the movie (2005)?

If you were to recommend a book right now, what would it be?

Happy Bday Cassandra Austen!

Happy Bday Tom Lefroy!!!!
From Wikipedia:
“In a letter started on Thursday (14 January 1796), and finished the following morning, there was another mention of him.
Friday. — At length the day is come on which I am to flirt my last with Tom Lefroy, and when you receive this it will be over. My tears flow as I write at the melancholy idea
In the latter years of Tom Lefroy’s life, he was questioned about his relationship with Jane Austen by his nephew, and admitted to having loved Jane Austen, but stated that it was a “boyish love”.[7] As is written in a letter sent from T.E.P. Lefroy to James Edward Austen Leigh in 1870,
My late venerable uncle … said in so many words that he was in love with her, although he qualified his confession by saying it was a boyish love. As this occurred in a friendly & private conversation, I feel some doubt whether I ought to make it public.”

Wed. LITERARY TRIVIA: Two different characters with the same name. Jane Austen’s SENSE AND SENSIBILITY was published in 1811. Austen did not want her name on the novel and the author was simply listed as “by a Lady”. Fifty-seven years later, in 1868, Louisa May Alcott published LITTLE WOMEN. In Alcott’s novel, the character of Jo March also does not want her name on works published in a magazine. The fates of both Austen’s main characters and Alcott’s main character of Jo are affected and determined by one character who has the same name in both books. What is the character’s name? And what is his/her role in each book?
