Pod and Prejudice podcast.

Becca & Molly GIVE ME LIFE! As a fellow daughter of the theatre, I LOVE these two and their podcast! Becca has read Jane Austen – Molly has not. I highly recommend this podcast. I’ve been rereading P & P and it’s so fun to read along with the chapters as Becca assigned them to Molly, and then to listen to them discuss. They read the books & watch adaptations with a modern-feminist perspective and I want to be the very best of friends with them.

Purveyors of Fine Literary Gifts.
I found this shop on Etsy when I was looking for Jane Austen candles for my birthday party and I fell in love with these! Candles named after our favorite Austen characters with custom scents! I got one of their gift sets of a tea cup & saucer, and small Marianne & Brandon candles! I am particulary fond of the Brandon scent: Burnished Leather & Morning Post … YES! Highly reccomend these candles as a great gift for the Austen fan in your life!

Check them out on Etsy.

Sips & Sensibility.

Beth, Julia, and Lori grab something to sip and talk about Jane Austen adaptions!
These three have great banter and I really enjoy listening to their opinions about different adaptations. I like that these ladies have an eye for literary and artistic choices made in adaptations, while also making sure to ask Lori which Austen man she would date in every episode.

I LOVE the Jane Austen Centre in Bath! I have had the great privilege of having visited twice in years past and I just simply enjoy this house, the tour, and especially the super lit gift shop! Their site has awesome resources and their newsletter is something I look forward to.
