Twenty-five Days of Christmas Cheer: December 16th (Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!)

In lieu of Sunday Serenade today, I am instead celebrating Jane Austen’s 237th birthday! She is one of my favorite authors. Her novel Northanger Abbey is my favorite, with Persuasion coming in at a close second. Any of Austen’s novels are good to curl up with under a cozy blanket with a mug of steaming hot tea. They are excellent winter novels. If you don’t know all of them, a list follows. Go to the library and treat yourself. Better yet, go buy a copy of one as an early Christmas present. šŸ™‚

1. Pride & Prejudice

2. Northanger Abbey

3. Persuasion

4. Sense & Sensibility

5. Mansfield Park

6. Emma

 

And because England is beautiful when covered in snow, here is a picture of Bath in the winter time.
