Following Austen

A fellow Jane Austen fan took a trip to England last summer to visit the places connected with that famous female author, and is slowly posting bits and pieces of her story on her blog.

I find her stories utterly fascinating and am looking forward to reading the archives. So far, I've discovered that Jane's brothers attended St. John's College, Oxford, which I wish I'd known when I lived and studied there for almost two months during the summer of 2001. I did love St. John's garden, and I even had a favorite tree that I would often sit in, curled up with a book (sometimes something by Austen herself), during a free afternoon. Oh, the looks I received from visitors!
